A single word can change a life. The right word in the right context can have a profound impact. I’ve built Maximum Impact upon this foundation, and  you will find that in every interaction, in every precision course or service I offer, I challenge you to also live and write for maximum impact, while simultaneously showing you how to do it.

Into the Flash

an online, live 5-week exploration of short-form writing

Through weekly live meetings, expertly curated readings, inspiring prompts, individual critique, group discussion, mindful flow exercises & more, you’ll develop intentionality & focus as a writer (& have fun!) while dramatically improving your craft. Guaranteed. Begins June 27.

Monthly Mentorship

direct your passion for writing into devoted practice, focused action, & mastery of craft

My most immersive, game-changing program offered. Ideal for dedicated writers working toward completion of a manuscript, as well as published authors seeking a “fresh approach” to a project.

Manuscript Review

creative & developmental feedback for partial & full manuscripts

Whether you’re completing a first or second book, self-publishing a memoir, or aspiring for a first collection of short stories, a professional, critical, creative reader to help you think outside the box is crucial to completing a manuscript you feel proud of.

Artist Statement & Web Writing Package

Update your artist statement & website content

Too often this content is written in “art speak” – inaccesible & obtuse language. I’ll re-envision compelling content to lure gallery owners, exhibition or residency jurors, collectors, granting agencies, academic institutions, & everyday art enthusiasts alike.
