About Donna

WRITING TO WRITE

Pick a topic that you know something about. Start writing until you run out of words. Read until you find the kernel of the piece, what your story is truly about. Pull it out of your piece and use it to write again. Start rewriting: adding to, or eliminating, pumping up your sentences when need be. Rewrite until it feels finished. Then, polish.

I will design a special course tailored to each student, teaching you to write non-fiction books, self-help books & magazine & newspaper features that SELL.

I am a freelance writer who has published ten books, edited major magazines & newspapers (NY Post, Cosmopolitan Living, Scholastic Choices, etc.) and written many, many articles for Glamour, Good Housekeeping, Family Circle, etc. I had a regular column (SAVY) for US magazine. Currently, I am under contract to write for Hearst Magazines.

I have taught and mentored at New Youth Connections, The Nationally famous High School Newspaper and held writing workshops in Los Angeles, Santa Fe, London and
New York City.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
