Writing Coach

I support individuals in the effort to find voice on the page and to deepen self-expression. I am available to facilitate generative writing, or—for work in progress—to get behind a writer’s intention. No writing experience is necessary, only the desire to play with language. 


Developmental Editor

I coach writers working on full-length manuscripts of creative nonfiction or personal essays.


I teach the memoir series for the University of Washington PCE Certificate in Writing Program. You can register for the memoir courses here.

I also teach creative writing workshops for Hugo House in Seattle. You will find their course catalog here.
