Writing workshop for middle school students

There's still time to sign up for my fiction writing workshop through the Lexington Community Education department. We'll meet Thursday night, November 19, from 6-7:30pm. These classes are a great way to introduce fiction writing (and we have fun!!) to your sixth, seventh or eighth grader. For more information, email me. Or visit the website.

Join me at Grub Street this summer

This summer at Grub Street I will be teaching an advanced fiction writing class for those interested in writing novels for kids. Our focus will be on critiquing, exploring ways to move forward on drafts and revising strategies. This class is perfect for anyone who has taken my introductory classes and/or who has made progress (at least 50 pages) on a draft. Come on, don't be shy. Join us! Here's the link: website 

Are you going to the Muse & the Marketplace?

One of the highlights of springtime in Boston is The Muse and the Marketplace, a three-day writing/publishing conference sponsored by Grub Street. This year The Muse will take place on May 1-3. And this year I will be presenting a workshop on using personal experience in our writing. To read about my workshop and see all of the other wonderful workshops and speakers, check out the Muse website.

Grub Street Again!

I'm happy to announce that I will again teach at Grub Street this winter. Starting in early February, I will teach an introductory course on writing for middle grade and young adults. If you are an adult and interested in this fiction genre, check it out. It's a perfect class for beginners and intermediates! If you have any questions, please contact me off line. Website.
