Let’s learn together!

I believe everyone can write and that we all have stories to tell.  As an instructor, I create a safe space for these often powerful and deeply personal expressions.  I guide participants through the writing process and offer them tools to use as they continue their writing lives beyond our shared experience.  Our writing develops with time and attention, and in the practice, we are changed.

I’ve taught all kinds of people in all kinds of settings:  at-risk youth on a farm, middle aged memoirists at libraries, reluctant learners in a k-12 school, talented teens in private classes, university students, community college students, intergenerational groups at festivals, and more.  Experiential learning sticks best.  Classes are filled with writing, movement, and generally include moments in or with nature.

I enjoyed Kathleen’s class so much – it lit up my whole winter!

Thank you for making me a better writer, how much is not the issue; the fact that I now enjoy writing is the main aspect for me.

Kathleen is a valuable resource for anyone considering taking the next steps in writing and publishing.
