I love teaching writing almost as much as I love writing. I teach writing classes throughout the Seattle area, for organizations like Richard Hugo House, and I teach online for Creative Nonfiction magazine. My students have written and published novels and non-fiction books, essays and short stories. My specialties are the novel, the non-fiction book proposal, memoir and family history. I’ve also been a guest speaker at local, regional and international writing conferences. I’m the founder of the Shipping Group.
