I love talking to and working with students of all ages, but particularly secondary students. I’ve run successful writing workshops in the homeless community, schools, literature festivals and camps. I’ve also been a guest speaker and addressed large groups of senior students.
My goal is to inspire young people to write creatively and think big, and to never, ever give up on their dreams, however distant they may seem.
