March 21, 2023: With the exception of ONE-ON-ONES, which are ongoing (details below), there are no current class offerings at this time. If you’re in Seattle and would like to take a group writing class with me in 2023, check back soon for new classes.

One-on-One Writing Intensive
4 week class
Day & Time to be determined by student / teacher arrangement
Description — these classes are catered to the specific student and their personal writing goals. Are you wanting to get into a regular rhythm of writing? Need some inspiration? Help with certain craft elements or revision? Maybe just another set of eyes on your work? These classes are designed just for you. Tell me what you’re looking for and we’ll meet each week for an hour and a half for a personalized one-on-one class that’s designed to help you reach your goals. I’m also open to 2 or 3 students at a time for a reduced rate, if your goals are similar.
Not sure if this class is for you, send me an email or shoot me a text and we can figure it out together.

About me: I’ve lived in West Seattle for 15 years with my husband and our two kids. I hold an MFA in Creative Writing and my work has appeared or is forthcoming with Relief, Pangyrus, Literary Mama, and elsewhere. If I’m not writing, you can probably find me on a pickle ball court at the one of the WS community centers.
