Want me to visit your high school, university, or group? Let’s make it happen.
Falls really zip by for me. November wraps up a busy few months of speaking at high schools, universities, culinary schools, and libraries.
Here’s where I’ll be speaking in November:
11/7: Lock Haven University / International Education Week: 7PM at Price Hall (free and open to the public)
11/8 5:30 PM – South Bend, Indiana: Facing Project event: Voices of Teenage Girls

11/16 Writers Center of Indiana: 2013 Gathering of Writers / Teaching a nonfiction workshop at 12:45
Truth, Justice, and the Creative Nonfiction Way
Works of creative nonfiction don’t just have to do the truth justice; they have to be the truth. Writers of creative nonfiction explore truths through verifiable facts, shaping the narrative using the same tools as writers of fiction: scene, pacing, setting, characterization, etc.. Students will be introduced to these elements and given the opportunity to use them in their own writing and share them in the class.
11/18 (time TBD) Cornerstone University Grand Rapids, Michigan
11/20 6:30 PM Indian Hill High School Cincinnati, OH
