Teaching & Consultation

Manuscript Consultation

I am available to read and critique applications to MFA programs, novels-in-progress, story collections, or individual stories. I’ll provide detailed notes and suggestions via mail, and conversations via email and Skype. I can also provide writing prompts and reading assignments to help shape an incipient idea into a structured project. After the editing process, we can talk about possible avenues to publication. Please email me for details >>

Individual Workshops

I am available to teach online, one-on-one fiction workshops. Beginning workshops will include a series of initial writing assignments designed to explore the breadth and variety of narrative techniques, and will culminate in a 10-15 page story. Advanced workshops will focus on workshopping 2-3 longer (15-25 page) pieces. Please email me for details >>

I currently teach fiction writing in the University of Tampa’s low-residency MFA program. I’ve also taught at George Washington University, Dickinson College, and California State University San Bernardino.
