Beginner and Intermediate Writing Workshops.

It’s true that writing is an endeavor best done alone. But how do you begin? What if you’re stuck? And what happens once you have something written? I can help you through all stages of the writing process, from beginner to seeking out publication. I offer private lessons via Skype.
