Teaching, Editing & Events

I’ve been at this for many years, as both a journalist and a fiction writer, and have always had the great good fortune of finding excellent teachers when I needed them. I don’t take this for granted, because I know people who’ve searched fruitlessly for the right teacher for a long time. My goal is simply to pay my good luck forward when I can, whether by teaching, editing, giving readings, or in whatever way presents itself. I’m not the best teacher or editor for everyone, obviously; no one can be that. But when I click with my students or clients, we all seem to benefit, and I find a lot of joy in that.
