I think the saying "everyone has a story inside of them" is silly. I believe everyone contains multiple stories, some grounded in fact and some grounded in imagination, some lyrical and circuitous and some plain and straightforward--all of them stretching towards the truth. I believe we need these stories in the world.
I currently teach students at St. Olaf College, but I've also lead writing workshops and literature sessions at Holden Village, River Bend Nature Center, and Millstream Commons Senior Living Center.
If you're looking to bring a workshop to your next book club or retreat, to your classroom or your workplace, please get in touch with me.
