I believe that art and writing are skills that anyone can learn. That’s why I teach online classes that you can take at your own pace, giving you time to pick up a new skill and practice it.
In my twenty years as a bestselling author, I have taught writing workshops at book festivals, libraries, conferences, and universities. In 2012, I was invited to be the first Tin House Writer-in-Residence, a partnership with Portland State University, where I taught in the MFA program.
Now I’ve taken the most common questions I’m asked by aspiring writers and created short, simple classes online that you can watch anytime. Be sure to post questions in the discussion, because I will be dropping in regularly to chat!
I also teach art classes, all based on the idea of taking a simple drawing or painting technique and applying it to a fun project, like painting doors or cocktails or flowers. I hope you enjoy them!
