Resources for Educators

I’m delighted to offer virtual classroom visits and writing workshops for students. I specialize in  genre writing workshops including ghost stories, horror, science fiction, and fantasy. We’ll talk about the rules of the genre (and how to break them), do writing sprints with engaging visual prompts, and share our work in a lively, encouraging environment. Please contact me for details!

Below are some resources for young writers interested in submitting their work for publication.
