“I know I have lived when I have told you my story.”
Spalding Grey

I work privately on an hourly basis, online and in my home in downtown Toronto, as an editor, mentor, and writing coach. I help with editing, preparing a manuscript, recharging. I can also get you set up and launched.

Of the students who have gone on working with me, a number have had pieces published in magazines, newspapers, and story anthologies; they’ve published books with big, small, and indie presses. Longtime student Margaret Norquay’s first book, Broad is the Way, was published by Wilfred Laurier University Press when Margaret was 86.

I would be happy to hear from you. Please see the Contact page for my email and addresses.

Once a month during the summer, I run “Write in the Garden” workshops, one day intense write-on-the-spot gatherings in my long, lush backyard. For notes from writers who have attended, click here
