As an educator, I hope to use my experience to help facilitate writers in developing their own ideas, voices and problem solving techniques. I come at all of my teaching from a perspective that acknowledges and respects the lived experience of the writer, and the accompanying knowledge gained with that experience. I hope to help writers unearth the aims behind their writing and to offer them tools and space to best achieve these. I have been nurturing writers through their unique projects for over a decade and am available to help you take your writing project to the next level.
*As a neurodivergent and genderqueer educator I especially welcome ND and Trans*/GNC writers who are looking for a supportive and accessible feedback environment, and I also welcome requests for sensitivity readings around these identity factors.
