Aspiring writers: I’m an instructor at the Chang School of Continuing Education Creative Writing Program at X University, and I would love to teach you!

I’m currently teaching the online course CWWR 410 – Short Fiction Writing – Level 1

Educators: I would be delighted to speak with your creative-writing classes! I love speaking with students about the writing process, passing along tips and tricks I’ve picked up during my writing career so far, and conducting fiction-writing workshops. Among other appearances, I’ve been the keynote speaker for a “New Directions in Canadian Short Fiction” panel co-hosted by the Canadian Authors Association, Iguana Books, Editors Toronto, and the Creative Writing Program at the University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies; and a frequent guest author at the Toronto District School Board’s Authors’ Day. I’ve been a workshop leader at the Oakville Public Library and at the White Pine Reading Celebration in Oshawa. I’ve also been a guest speaker at college and university creative-writing classes in Toronto; and a guest speaker and workshop leader for Writer’s Craft classes at high schools in the Toronto, Durham, and Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Boards, and at Havergal College in Toronto. I’ve also given writing talks to members of the Writers’ Community of Durham Region, the Writers’ Community of Simcoe County, and the Writers’ Community of York Region. Please get in touch for my fees.
