“Learning how to get your work out into the world can feel opaque and overwhelming. I love to work with and support my students on every step of the process-- from learning about creative nonfiction, to crafting a great story, to finding where to publish it or putting together a portfolio for creative writing programs. Everyone has a story to tell, and I'm honored to help you tell it.”
