PhD in Creative Writing with academic teaching, editing and publishing experience, now tutors online from South Australia, and specializes in poetry, prose and academic writing.

Methodology

I have a PhD in Creative Writing from Adelaide University and a BA in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University. I have worked in editing and publishing and taught Communication subjects at UniSA for fifteen years. I have tutored privately and given workshops in the community to many different age groups. I like to tailor writing exercises to the needs of the individual.

Background

When tutoring in Creative Writing, I show students how to find their authentic voice, and to experiment with styles and genres. I encourage a conscious awareness of the creative process so students can evolve their writing, by mining their personal experiences and imagery to create texts that have universal appeal. In tutoring academic writing, I explain the purpose of the writing, editing and referencing process so the many assessment criteria are demystified. I specialize in structural editing.
