Welcome to my teaching page.

For the past twelve years, I’ve been teaching critical and creative writing at the University of British Columbia; now I’m offering workshops and classes for individuals and professional organizations.

I’ve recently led workshops for Blue Rock Artists Ranch, the Society for Experimental Social Psychology, the Alberta Teachers Association, Adelaide Writers Week, and the Creative Nonfiction Collective.

In these workshops we talk about everything from generating ideas and making the time and space to write to dealing with creative challenges and finding paths to publication. I tailor the workshops to individual audiences, but all of them focus on how to use your voice, insight and experience to connect with readers.

I’ll be offering several workshops and classes in the Vancouver area throughout 2019. If you’re interested in attending one of these, please sign up below!
