I teach writing classes at Antioch University Los Angeles’ BA Program, Writing Workshops Los Angeles, and Inspiration2Publication through Antioch University’s MFA Program.

If you live in LA, I offer salon-style courses in creative nonfiction and fiction through Writing Workshops Los Angeles. I also offer coaching and consultation through them.


If you are currently in Los Angeles, I will be offering new in-person courses this summer through Writing Workshops Los Angeles (unfortunately, spring classes have now sold out.)

I have taught classes in:
Fiction (Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced)
Creative Nonfiction (Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced)
Novel Writing
Writing for Social Change
Memoir Writing
Academic Writing
Creative Writing on the Internet
To Show and To Tell: The Art of Scene and Summary

Here’s an interview with me about teaching at Writing Workshops Los Angeles.

A kick-ass quote that sums up a lot of what I think about teaching and writing:

“Art itself is our language for expressing the understandings of the heart, the body, and the spirit. Any reduction of that language into intellectual messages is radically, destructively incomplete.” — Ursula K. Le Guin
