As an Expressive Writing facilitator, I am not your typical writing instructor. My workshops and conference presentations are always hands-on with the focus on process, not product. I offer coaching, groups and workshops for writers who need help overcoming blocks, for anyone who wants to access their creativity in their art or their business, and for those seeking well-being and/or enlightenment through therapeutic, meditative writing. I have run stress-release/well-being classes and presentations for teachers and college students, at yoga centers, and at Rutland Regional Medical Center.
