Writing & On-Line Courses
I primarily work with individuals looking to begin or develop a collection of poetry into a manuscript, and guide them in the publication process. I also provide feedback on individual pieces of writing (fiction/non-fiction/poetry), as well as editorship for three to six months. Course fees vary, depending on specific project needs. Please contact me if you would like to arrange a small group or private class.
I also have extensive experience providing educational workshops in the areas of creative writing, poetry, and non-fiction. As the Head of English for a York Region high school, I’ve had the chance to work with teachers and students on a wide range of issues, and feel very comfortable suiting the workshop to meet individual needs, and/or that of curriculum. I have experience speaking to University level classes, and have worked with professors on topics such as metacognition and the bridges between language and memory. In 2010, as a result of my teaching efforts, I was honoured and celebrated with a nomination for the York Region District School Board Teacher of the Year Award.
