Though I am taking a hiatus from teaching for a few years, I taught writing classes at the UCLA-Extension Writer’s Program, Antioch University Los Angeles, and Writing Workshops Los Angeles, and Inspiration2Publication through Antioch University’s MFA Program.
I still often speak at universities or other institutions on topics that include creative writing, developmental editing, bisexual activism, professional writing, and narrative and storytelling in activism.
My classes have included:
Fiction (Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced)
Creative Nonfiction (Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced)
Writing for Social Change (Professional Writing for Nonprofits)
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
