Presentations & Speaking

For the last decade I’ve had the privilege of presenting workshops, seminars, keynotes, and webinars for writers’ conferences, organizations, and groups across the country.

Having spent nearly thirty years working in the publishing industry on literally thousands of manuscripts, I’ve created practical, actionable techniques for authors to learn to deepen, develop, and hone their stories to effectively and powerfully convey their vision on the page (and actually enjoy the process!).

My workshops and presentations take complex story concepts and distill them into digestible ideas and easily actionable techniques to show authors in clear steps how to more clearly see and assess their own work and improve their storytelling and craft, using a variety of practical techniques and tools, real-world examples, and optional hands-on demonstrations (“live edits”) with authors’ WIPs.

Download my speaking kit for a list of available workshops, and I can also customize presentations to your organization’s needs.

If you’re interested in having me virtually join your writers’ group, chapter, or organization online—either for a workshop, presentation, panel, or discussion/Q&A—drop me a line.
