application essays & portfolios
I treat writing as an act of tending and un-taming.
I understand that writing can be an intimidating endeavor, filled with self-doubt and uncertainty. I am here to offer guidance, support, and encouragement as we embrace both the joy and the challenges of the creative process.
I’ve worked with a diverse range of writers, from seasoned authors seeking guidance on their latest projects to beginners taking their first steps. I encourage my students to embrace their idiosyncrasies and experiment with different techniques, in order to help them discover new dimensions of their creativity and develop a stronger authorial identity.
