You can find me teaching in many settings across the country. I am the Associate Director of the New York State Summer Writers Institute in Saratoga Springs, NY. Fall, Winter and Spring, I live in San Diego where I teach creative writing classes at UCSD Extension, host a manuscript workshop with pie, and mentor Science and Engineering students on personal essays. Outside the classroom setting, I host Manuscript Workshops with guest of honor, David Ulin. We’ve been at it for over 5 years–memoir and novels accepted. David and I love the work and students have gone on from our workshop to get stellar agents and successful book deals.
