You’re going to feel like hell if you wake up someday and you never wrote the stuff that is tugging on the sleeves of your heart.”
– Anne Lamott
You don’t need an MFA to be a writer, but you do need to continue learning, reading and growing…maybe forever.
I teach creative writing online, and in person whenever I can.
Creative writing courses:
Short fiction: craft, community, consciousness
I teach short fiction at Sarah Selecky Writing School, which pairs technique with mindfulness to help you see the world with a writer’s wide-open eyes.
The self-study Story Course is available anytime, but if you prefer the guidance of a teacher (and deadlines and classmates) you might want to join the Story Intensive, which runs for four months each fall.
(Full disclosure: I get a small referral payment if you sign up through my links. It is also part of the way I get paid for teaching. Please know that I’ve recommended this school since its inception and would do it anyway!)

Coming soon: my new creative non-fiction course
As a recovering journalist, I used to have a complicated relationship with non-fiction. But it was only after diving into creative non-fiction that I found my voice and began to thrive as a writer.
I’m currently developing a creative non-fiction course slated for early 2019. Stay tuned!
