“There are no rules for writing. In writing, you can do whatever you can get away with. In my experience, you cannot get away with very much.” – Flannery O’Connor

Writing. Any kind.

Writing for hire. Writing workshops. Individual coaching in writing. Editing of all sorts — line editing, text editing, comprehensive editorial guidance. Forty-plus years of teaching experience, several thousand newspaper and magazine articles, writing for fundraising, writing to market an institution, writing about running, music, hiking, politics, travel, charitable work, and writing itself. These are the things I do. Get in touch for help with your own writing or for professional academic and general-readership editing of your work. Watch for news about upcoming writing workshops, which will resume whenever the COVID-19 constraints are no longer necessary.

Refreshment in the jungle of language.
