Teaching

I began teaching Fiction workshops in 2009 with The Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis. Since 2013, I’ve been teaching Fiction and Creative Writing with the wonderful and legendary Gotham Writer’s Workshop. Since 2018, I’ve been running courses in Upstate, NY, under the Synthetic Prophetic name, usually in Kingston. Some day soon I may offer Instructional Retreats out of our barn in Olivebridge!

Fall 2019 Update
My summer sabbatical at the Olivebridge University of Yard Work is over. Fall courses in NYC are underway. But beginning November 4, I’m leading a 6-week course UPSTATE!
One-On-Ones
I also work with writers individually, providing manuscript assessments and feedback. In 2019, I worked with three novelists to assess and help plan their book-length fictions in progress. If you’re interested in working with me, please visit this page and ask for me by name.
