The single most important thing to know about writing is that it's what you do BEFORE you write that first sentence that is the key to success. I help you focus on how to THINK about what you will write.

Whether it's a middle school English essay, the SAT writing test (where every prompt begins with the words "Think carefully"), a college application essay, or a business presentation, how you set the stage for what you actually write makes all the difference.

I also work on grammar and vocabulary and other nuts-and-bolts aspects of writing. But that's the sort of thing you can learn in school. How to think about writing, other than using a rigid and formulaic rubric, is rarely taught -- and even more rarely taught well.

I have been a working writer for more than 30 years -- journalist, advertising copywriter, speechwriter, corporate communications specialist -- and I can pass on to you what you weren't taught in school.
