Workshops

Interested in expanding your writing talent and potential?

Here are four workshops I offer:

It's a Funny Thing:

15 Ways to Add Humor to Your Writing

In this workshop, I share fifteen-plus easy-to-implement tips and workshop exercises on how to find and mine the funny in any manuscript, culled from years of writing sitcoms. I also offer an insider’s view of what it’s like to work as a television writer.

The Organics of Outlining 

An organic approach to outlining that inspires creative storytelling. I guide participants through the process of turning a logline into a synopsis that will eventually grow into both a fluid and a cutting outline.

Are You Interested or Committed?

This question is a game changer in life as well as career. Let's take an honest look at your manuscripts, your ideas, your work habits, your life choices, and figure out where your passion truly lies so you can move from "interested" to "committed."

The Magic of Setting

Evocative settings can add atmosphere and dimension to your writing. I use improvisational writing exercises to help participants discover the beauty and value of setting in both their lives and work.
