I love teaching writing – both in the practical nuts and bolts right to the hands-on workshops. I have multiple workshops available and want to share two conferences where I will be presenting in the next four months.

WHEN: May 22 – 24, 2015
DETAILS: Words in 3D is unique because it gives writers connection to the full scope of industry resources, workshops and networks. This includes writing, editing and publishing.
WHAT: I will be meeting with aspiring writers in the Blue Pencil Café, giving advice and feedback. I will also be teaching two seminars:
