Upcoming Events

Just a note about the livestreams: these are generally posted on my Facebook author page and Instagram.


Events for fall 2022 and winter 2023 are being considered now. If YOU would like to have me talk with your book group or organization or class about writing -- poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, or zines -- I'd be happy to! I'm available in person (when we're not in the middle of a pandemic) or via video chat. Contact me and let's work out the details.


Saturday, January 14, 2023 -- Sawyer Yards Arts Market (Houston, TX)

I'll be sharing a space with fellow author Adam Holt from 11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. He writes MG/YA sci-fi, and I write urban fantasy and poetry appropriate for YA and adult. I'll also have SONIC CHIHUAHUA there -- come meet Han! -- and my poetry art cards. Han will have original artwork there as well. Visit their website for more details and to see all the artists there that day. 

I also regularly teach Creative Writing workshops for professional organizations including Writespace, WAN Academy (Write About Now), and Grackle & Grackle. Click on the links to learn more about them and to register for these workshops. All classes will be generative in nature and include instruction, writing time, and feedback on your work.

Writespace and Houston's High School for the Performing and Visual Arts are teaming up in January, February, and March of 2023 to offer a mentoring program for middle school students interested in Creative Writing. At the beginning of each of those months, a professional writer will teach the kids in the program a course on poetry or fiction or playwriting, and then over the course of the next four weeks, those middle school students will be mentored regularly by CW students at HSPVA.

I'll be teaching the Fiction course on February 5th, my colleague Kathryn Peterson will be teaching Playwriting on March 5th, and then I'll teach the Poetry course on April 2nd. There will be a reading of the students' original work at the end of the three-month program.


If you have or know any middle school kids interested in Creative Writing, please do send them our way! These courses will be conducted over Zoom, so location is not as much of an issue. This could make a wonderful holiday or birthday or bar/bat mitzvah gift for a young author-to-be! Space will also be limited, so I recommend signing up earlier rather than later.
