Writing Workshops


A variety of writing topics

I support new writers by developing workshops for both adults and children on the following topics:

  • Creating characters for young male readers
  • Details and exploding the moment
  • Types of conflict
  • Cultivating story ideas
  • How to write a series
  • Location, location: why setting matters
  • Writing habits, time management and you

I am pleased to discuss tailored workshops as well as availability.
