Creative Writing, Editing & Coaching
I offer editing and coaching for writers in the domains of grants, college/graduate school admissions, and other non-fiction. My training emerged in part through my work as a tutor at the Harvard College Writing Center (Harvard University, B.A. in Government and Studies of Women, Gender and Sexuality; certificate in Anthropology of Human Rights).
I lead workshops for youth, young adults, and community members in poetry and personal narrative. I teach classes for emerging writers to maximize their ability to communicate effectively. In partnership with Teachers 4 Social Justice and the education journal Rethinking Schools, I convened a writing circle for educators to reflect on their experiences.
As a creative writer, I compose plays, poems, and lyrical essays. I was a 2017 VONA fellow in playwriting; I have staged original dramatic work at Bindlestiff Studio and as an associate with Ragged Wing Ensemble. I have developed and showcased pieces of solo performance in the Bay Area.

"Your piece gives me chills every time..raw and powerful and mysterious!
You say so much with so few words - the weight, beauty, and tension is held by all that remains eternally unspoken and unable to be repaired." - Star Finch, Playwright & Playwriting Teacher
