As a teacher my mission is to help writers navigate the world of writing and publishing effectively.
As a writer my goal is the same as yours -- to be well published and widely read.
We all want to create the best work we have in us. We all want to find our readership audience.
I've spent my professional life in writing and publishing –- as a published author, a book editor, a literary agent and a workshop teacher.
I'm here to share what I've learned from those experiences with as many writers as I can possibly reach -- including my adventures as a working writer in the traditional publishing world and in the exciting new digital and do-it-yourself worlds beyond those traditions.
I will guide you toward giving your writing work and your writer self a clear shot at achieving your aspirations --- whether you aspire to attract agents or editors or readers or all of those to your books.
This site and my workshops are all about passing on a broad range of practical tips and pragmatic advice for writers who want to be published or better published in whichever format they may choose.
Email me your questions about writing & publishing. I will answer at the Ask Alice page. My email address is email@example.com.
Or –- Invite me to teach a workshop for your group.
And always –- Keep on Writing Whatever May Occur.
Meanwhile I will do my best to do the same and occasionally regale you with my tales of the pitfalls along that path.
