Fundamental to my approach to writing as a career and really any professional or personal endeavor is the desire to be doing something useful for people. I aim for all of my work, as a teacher, editor, and writer to give something people to walk away with at the end of it, something worth hanging onto and using. I tend to focus the classes and material I develop for group sessions on actionable, practical advice and information that writers can use to navigate the constantly changing media and publishing industry landscapes while my one-on-one sessions or services tend to be geared toward honing individual creative skills based on the individual’s personal short and long goals for a particular piece of work. My classes are only as valuable as the tangible results they yield for students, which have ranged from early career writers who took my pitching classes landing their first bylines in publications such as The Washington Post, Real Life Mag, Vox, and Allure to one-on-one sessions collaborating on book proposals leading to several students signing with literary agents and at least three confirmed to have sold their books to major publishing houses.
