writing in community
Inwood Writing Workshops offer a space for small, diverse groups of writers to share their work weekly and received constructive feedback on their work. The workshop groups are small, so everyone who wants has time to share each session. Feedback is focused on what the writer is attempting to accomplish, and each writer can request comments on specific issues. There is no 'house style' and all genres are welcome. I gear prompts and feedback to the needs of workshop participants rather than using a pre-existing formula.
The next two workshop sessions that begin in May 2021 are full, but there may be a place opening in September 2021, so contact me if you are interested or want to be waitlisted. Because of COVID, the workshops are now held on Zoom, so this is a good chance to attend the workshop if you live outside of NYC or far from Inwood. Even after COVID issues abate, most likely at least one workshop will remain on Zoom to accommodate new members who live elsewhere.
Periodically, I lead one-off workshops to help writers who want guidance in how to submit work to journals, agents, and publishers. I also teach yoga for writers workshops, to aid in accessing creative flow and compassionate self-discipline. If interested in either of these, I will put you on the contact list, and announce on this website.

If you prefer to work one-on-one, I also offer private coaching and editorial service
