THE WRITER'S SPARK: WRITING WORKSHOPS FOR EVERYONE
Banish your inner critic!
Embrace your innate ability to write stories!
Unleash the hounds of memory!
The Writer's Spark is a writing workshop for everyone--those of us who identify as writers and those of us who don't. In these workshops, we concentrate on re-connecting to that place in our past where we just made things, without asking the question: "Is this any good?" Freeing ourselves from that critical voice allows your stories to reveal themselves to you in unexpected ways. Inspired by the work and teaching of Lynda Barry, (artist and author of What It Is, The Good Times Are Killing Me, and Picture This, among others), participants in these workshops write, draw, color, and more. Anything Can Happen!!
"Writing should take you for a ride."
I have over ten years experience editing and proofreading a variety of writing projects, including creative manuscripts, artist statements, CVs,
dissertations, and journal articles. Contact me for more information
about how I can help you make your work shine!
My memoir work has appeared in The Raven Chronicles and in the anthology, Dorothy Parker's Elbow: Tattoos on Writers, Writers on Tattoos, edited by Kim Addonizio and Cheryl Dumesnil, (Warner, 2002). In 2009, my haiku was commissioned by Brooks Books, to be painted as a sumi-e painting. The haiga was created by Lidia Rozmus, and appeared on the cover of Mayfly, issue no. 46. In 2018, I contributed haiku to 100 Choices, a fundraiser for Mango House in Denver, CO, an organization that aids the refugee population in the city. Currently, I am at work on a graphic memoir about my childhood experiences in downtown Hartford, CT in the 70s.
