Teaching

I teach online writing courses fairly frequently for the wonderful Loft Literary Center. My next class there is a half-day online workshop on historical fiction on Dec. 4. Stay tuned!

You can find me teaching a few classes for the Rambo Academy (which I recommend in general for a wide mix of live and on-demand writing classes, and there are always scholarships available.) My on-demand classes there include Writing Interactive Fiction ($19US), Historical Research for Writers ($9US), and The Basics: A Toolkit for Writing Fiction ($9US).

When the lockdowns started in North America, I created a very simple, seven-day free course on building (or rebuilding) a writing practice on my website.

I teach journalism as a contract instructor at Carleton University, most recently teaching the arts and culture reporting class there.

I’m also available to teach writing workshops, in both fiction and non-fiction. I run op-ed writing workshops frequently, drawing on my experience as a newspaper opinion editor.
