All The Write Stuff: Award-winning writer, journalist, and English prof will help you with fiction, nonfiction, academic writing, journalism, editing, literature, and more.

Methodology

I've been a writer or editor for The New York Times, Outside Magazine, Wired, Salon, the Philadelphia Inquirer ... the list is a long one. Plus, I've got master's degrees in journalism and creative writing. 'Nuff said. I teach with kindness and humor. I'll help you learn by practice and example.

Background

I've taught English composition and creative writing at the college level. I've been a writing coach at numerous publications during my 30-year career. I've helped writers do their best work on a daily basis. I've also helped three authors complete their books.
