Who, in your family, might want to write?


I love words, I love to write, and to write with young people. I have years of copywriting and advertising experience, but prose, poetry, and coaching writers is where my heart is.


For middle schoolers....


Summer Writing Group for Middle Schoolers

The Summer Writing Group is inventive and challenging. Writers will be encouraged to write every day, to learn from positive critique, and to expand their minds in writing. Even though it promises to be more like an adult writers group than a class, the Club will be wrapped in solid writing values and the planning and prioritizing skills that I always teach. Because it is summer, flexibility and fun will reign supreme. Missing a class wonʼt be a problem, and it will even be easy to bring a visiting cousin or friend to a session. Parents and writers will receive daily emails so they always know whatʼs happening!

First day preview: “What if your parents were zombies?!”


(Participants may choose to have an end-of-group public reading at Vashon Library.)

And, for older writers...


Summer Writing Group for High Schoolers

This is not a class, but a group. Writers will be encouraged to listen and share, to write every day, and to push themselves beyond what theyʼve previously or ordinarily accomplished. This should be a serious but fun group that will take its cues from its participants. Bring what youʼve written and what you want to write. Feel free to call and inquire, especially about the possibilities involved with these two writing disciplines.

First day preview: “Where do writers find their characters?”
