About Rory

I spent almost two decades as a newspaper reporter, bureau chief and editor, as well as a columnist and limited free-lance writing. I believe the best way to learn is hands on, the pupil needs to experience the effort and learn from the work involved, the effort is a teacher itself. One-on-one with a student allows the two working as a team to reach the set goals in a fun yet productive way. I can teach news writing, editing, creative writing and writing for the free-lance market. I have been published in newspapers, magazines and on-line.
I have a passion for writing and a desire to share my experience to pass on the world of writing and writing well, it isn't enough to say what one wants, but to say it well.
