For fastest progress, try individual coaching.
We'll work together to finish your projects, boost your work "tempo," improve your work/life balance, lower your stress, and help you reclaim your joyful attachment to your work. If you’re familiar with my writing, you probably already have an idea of what kind of coach I am. I’m compassionate, yet direct and focused and precise. I aim for quick progress. I don’t beat around the bush, but tell you what I think you’re doing right (usually, more than you realize), what I think you’re doing wrong (usually, less), and how others may be influencing your situation. I do best with clients who like a nuts-and-bolts, plain-spoken, pragmatic, problem-solving-oriented approach. More info.

In-Person Classes

Mark Twain House and Museum (Hartford, CT)
I'm so proud to announce that I will be teaching (along with Anita Diamant and others) at the Mark Twain House and Museum Writer's Weekend in Hartford, CT, on April 26 - 28 weekend. Honestly, at $150 for 20 sessions plus a free museum voucher, it's a steal. Limited to 150 participants, so advance registration and payment is a must: Call 860-280-3130 to register. More info.

Grub Street Writers (Boston)
My Grub Street classes always attract savvy, focused, fun, and compassionate students, for fantastic and supportive small-group learning experience. I welcome all students, including those writing creatively, but also for school, business, and activism/nonprofit work. Grub's downtown Boston venue is super-convenient, with good public transport access and discounted parking. I've had students from as far away as CT, NH, VT, and western MA, so you should come in, too, for a life-changing class.

Grub classes almost always fill early, so register NOW!
