For more than thirty years, I've been leading writing workshops in my home in Cambridge, MA. Most of my workshops are geared toward serious writers who want rigorous feedback; however, some sessions welcome beginners as well as seasoned writers who seek fresh ways of generating new material. Over the decades I've taught children, teens, doctors, lawyers, nannies, therapists, CEOs, rowing coaches and rabbis. Here's what some students have said about my teaching:
"I left feeling so happy!"
I love working with writers of every age and ability. My expertise is in literary fiction, memoir, and the essay form. An "ethical will" is a letter recounting one's formative life experiences, beliefs and values. This is a beautiful legacy and I enjoy working closely with people as they craft this document.
As a former teacher of college writing, I am well-positioned to help with college admission essays. My interest is working with people — I view myself not as an editor but as a teacher.
