Creative Writing Adventures / Author Visits


Creative Writing Adventures:

I lead writing adventures in Northern California at The Writers Nest–located in a converted lumber mill, circa 1892–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.
