I don’t teach writing.
Really, I don’t. I strongly believe that students teach themselves how to write. I teach how to get rid of the barriers that hold us back from writing — the inner critics, the uncertainties, the lack of passion or confidence.
I’ve taught personal essay writing at Duke University, 826 Valencia, and the Bureau of Fearless Ideas; in situ travel writing in the US, Italy, Morocco, China, Germany, Australia and the UK for Lonely Planet and World Nomads; and Find Your Voice in the US and the UK.
I’m available to teach writing to your group, class, organization, or business anywhere in the world. My two-hour or all-day workshops weave in elements of improvisation, Quantified Self and social psychology. My exercises are designed to confuse and quiet the Cerberus monster that blocks the door to our creativity.
