Please reach out for book review queries, reading invitations, interviews, conference panels or to learn more about my Editing Workshop and Persona Poetry Session.
My Editing Workshop discusses the ins and outs of how to prepare pieces for publication, what editors are looking for, and how to approach the submission process with an unmatched fearlessness.
My Persona Poetry Session is a generative workshop of writing beyond ourselves, through the fantasy, fun and demands of writing a character.
