I have been writing--poetry, fiction (short stories, novels), non-fiction (including essays, press releases, an interview column, ad copy, marketing materials, business proposals and letters, a book and more)--for over 40 years, and professionally editing for 4 years. During that time, my writing students and those people I've helped edit have told me that they have learned to write more clearly and love the results of our joint efforts. (Writing is often a collaborative effort once one has the initial idea down.)
I suggest writing techniques, help my students put together viable and clear constructions with logical transitions, and often make them laugh.
Learning should be fun, and although writing can be boring and a chore, it can also be a joy. When you look at the finished product and ask yourself, "Did I write that?" (even knowing all the hard work you put into it), you will know that you can write well.
I will take on most students (at nearly any skill level) provided they will listen to my advice and can benefit from my lessons.
In addition, I also can teach business writing, having been in business (retail, wholesale, inside and outside sales), producing direct mail campaigns, introductory letters, brochures, etc. for over 20 years. (I've been certified in business.)
