Adventures On & Off the Page…


Creative Writing Adventures:

I lead writing adventures in the United States and internationally. I offer guided writing adventures to people of all ages, using prompts from my books that play with images in endless ways: tipping words over to see what spills out, shape shifting for metaphors, throwing personification parties, taking haiku hikes, penning and sending secret letters, and more. Everyone is creative. Anyone can write a poem. I can show you how. If you would like to fund a student with a partial of full writing scholarship — or apply for a scholarship — visit
