For 30 years, I have taught a wide variety of creative writing, composition, and literature classes to adults, children, college students, and incarcerated adults and teens. I am an enthusiastic, practical, and inspiring teacher. I currently teach at The Writer's Center, Pyramid Atlantic Art Center, and in private homes in Maryland and the DC area.
Upcoming classes at The Writer's Center
Read, Write & Workshop
6 Thursdays, October 4 - November 8, 2018 from 7:00-9:30pm
Get ready to have fun and learn a lot. By close reading contemporary poems - by Danez Smith, Terrance Hayes, Paula Cisewski, Diane Suess, and others- participants will better understand how poems move, work, and make use of nifty skills (Like line breaks, imagery, sound, or transitions). Each week, participants will use these poems to inspire new poems or guide their revisions. The instructor will facilitate positive class workshops that will offer poets helpful feedback and inspiring roads for revision. Participants will likely have two poems workshopped (depends on total enrollment).
