I have worked as a writer, editor, and author for more than 35 years, and I teach all the workshops from The Heart of Story. Trained as a journalist, I incorporate techniques from narrative (also known as literary) nonfiction that apply to nonfiction and fiction alike. (I am helpless with poetry.) My goal in all workshops is to help other writers achieve clear, well-constructed prose. My experience has taught me that writers improve as a result of constructive critique, and I include it in most of my workshops, following clear guidelines. Using this process and a variety of tools, the writers in my workshops have flown to new heights and lifted my heart. Thank you!
