Writing Coach, short and long term
Whether you have an idea that needs fleshing out, are stalled on a longer project, want to improve your writing process, need someone to celebrate the small victories, or just want a first reader, I taught composition for a decade. I am comfortable with all genres, from nonfiction to experimental poetry, and all target audiences, from academics to craigslist postings. Price listed for an initial consult (usually 30 minutes in person or Skype, although email is also an option) we can negotiate what other services you might want and a price for them.
Training & Qualifications
I earned my PhD in postcolonial and multi-ethnic literature with minors in film and rhetoric and composition as well as a certificate and three years teaching gender and sexuality. My professional experiences focus on making education and activism inclusive and accessible. I've done this both through cultural analysis (how do the language and practices of this organization exclude?) and administration (what logistical barriers prevent underrepresented groups from participating and what resources can effectively overcome these barriers?).
Availability & Preferences
Thursdays and Fridays, sometimes other late afternoons.
