I have taught creative writing and Writing for Children and Young Adults at New York University, Brooklyn College and Pace University, where I will be teaching in the spring of 2016.


Sign up for my Advanced Writing Workshop – Writing for Children and Young Adults:

This course is designed for those who have taken my workshop previously, or anyone with previous kidlit workshop experience.

Focus will be on improving unfinished first drafts: developing character, tightening premise and plot, enhancing setting and exploring voice and theme. We will also discuss the business of pubishing – how to write queries, methods for finding an agent or editor and marketing strategies.

The class will run in January 2016 for four Saturday mornings – the 9th, 16th, 23rd and 30th, from 10-12. We will meet in the McDuffie room at the Katonah Library in Katonah, New York.

Feel free to email work before the 9th, to be workshopped in the first class at Please no more than 10 pages.
