I enjoy speaking at events and teaching workshops on various subjects, such as these:

  • Writing fiction and/or creative nonfiction
  • Business writing
  • Self-editing for creative writers
  • Self-editing for business writers
  • Self-editing for students
  • The history of global literature
  • The history of publishing
  • Culture and activism in writing
  • Authorship as entrepreneurship
  • Business success for freelancers

I spoke about authorship as entrepreneurship at the 2017 Tallahassee Writers Conference and Book Festival, and in November 2017, I spoke with the EFA Boston Chapter about editing fiction. I spoke on panel about finances for freelancers, and I presented my own individual talk on constructed languages in fiction, at the ACES: The Society for Editing conference in April 2018.

I provide my own slideshow presentations and other visuals or props when necessary. For events more than 50 miles away from Phoenix, Arizona USA, I ask that my transport and lodging are provided for or that I am reimbursed for at least some of those expenses, if at all possible. Please contact me for more information.
