I’m teaching two courses at the Loft Literary Center this summer. Each is four weeks long, and $80 USD for non-members. They’re on your own schedule and meant to be “low stakes”, which means you can just do the exercises and read the material on your own if you like, but there is also a forum, and the opportunity for feedback from me and optional live chats every week.

The first, in June, is Dial Up the Tension, which is aimed at reducing those “just didn’t connect” and “didn’t grab me” rejections.

The second is a repeat of Finish Your Novel, which was very popular when I ran it earlier this year.

I’m also available to teach writing workshops, in both fiction and non-fiction.

I teach journalism as a contract instructor at Carleton University. Most recently, I’ve taught arts and culture journalism there.
