Since 2015, I have taught Reporting for Media at St. Michael's College, Burlington, VT.

I provide a practical, hands-on approach to developing strong writing skills, enabling students to master the investigative skills of reporting, and embrace the art of storytelling.

As a Professor of Creative Writing, I have also coached new and aspiring writers for more than two decades.

I take on freelance editing and mentoring work for a limited number of new writers, providing editorial feedback, copy-editing manuscripts, and helping writers start, finish, and bring to publication writing in all genres.


I also work with non-fiction material, including press releases, annual reports, white papers, grant proposals, letters and communications.
