Teaching

I recently created a very short and gentle free course on building (or rebuilding) a writing practice, which you can find here.

I frequently teach creative writing courses online at the Loft Literary Center. Stay tuned for upcoming classes there.

Over at Cat Rambo’s academy, I’ve got two live courses coming up soon: Writing Interactive Fiction on April 11, and Historical Research for Writers on May 24. There’s an new on-demand version of the interactive fiction one, which we’ve made free for the first week as a gift to people who are social-distancing.

In late spring 2020, I’ll be running another session of The Elements of Fiction for the Learning in Retirement program at Carleton University. This one is an in-person class so participants need to be in Ottawa. (UPDATE: this class is cancelled due to the pandemic.)

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.
