What I Teach

Creative Writing Courses and Workshops in Both Poetry and Fiction:

Are you an aspiring novelist?  A poet who wants to move to the next level?  Come study with me!  Everyone is welcome to join my online courses–you don’t have to be a full-time student or a resident of Virginia.  Click here to read more about joining my writing community!

Renaissance Literature:

The poetry, prose, and drama of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries are featured in my Renaissance Literature courses, though I sometimes wander back into the Medieval Period as well.  Acting out plays of the period is always a highlight!


Shakespeare is meant to be seen and experienced,  not just read!  My Shakespeare courses are on-your-feet interpretations, where we use minimal props and stage settings to understand the plays better.
