Teaching and workshops

They say creative writing can’t be taught. I would suggest that goes for many disciplines and practices. Writing should be accorded no additional mystique. I’ve taught classes and workshops in a wide variety of genres, from graphic narrative to prose poetry, from parenting memoirs to speculative fiction. I’ve given talks and classes on building characters using portrait drawing techniques, on writing as healing, and am increasingly interested in walking and interactions with nature and place as triggers for creative expression. Currently I teach in the creative writing and interdisciplinary expressive arts departments at Kwantlen Polytechnic University. Contact me for more information about customized courses and workshops.
