Welcome, Somerville!!

Perhaps you saw me striking this sweet pose along with my awesome sister Sonia.

Did we meet at SomerStreets, that awesome street fair where they close down Highland Ave to cars? Yay! Welcome to my website! I’m so happy you’re here. Here’s a little more about me.

At SomerStreets, you might have seen my DIY Writing Retreat guides and some special DIY Writing Retreat kits–if you want to buy a guide for your friends and family, hop on over here. (If you would like a kit, please email me!)

You can see my other guides here in my online shop–buy them as printable PDFs and you can print them as many times as you like. Just please don’t share! Do you run a class/writing group/retreat of your own? Email me and we will work out a way to get you all the copies you need!

Here are some of the articles, short stories, and essays I’ve written. I’m particularly proud of this short story that Moments Between Literary published (read online).

Thank you so much for stopping by! Want to talk about writing, reading, collaboration, literally almost anything? Email me–I seriously love to email with readers and writers.

A handy (free) spreadsheet for writers

Want to keep track of your pitches to magazines and your short story submissions to journals? Download my spreadsheet for writers here. It’s totally free, and you don’t even have to sign up for my newsletter to get it.

I made this spreadsheet for The Write Life a million years ago–and it is still one of the most popular posts on my website. So, in case you don’t have one yet, here’s a handy spreadsheet to help you meet your 2021 writing goals.

Want to learn more? Here’s the original article, all about the many benefits of keeping track of your pitches & submissions, on The Write Life.

*I promised in DIY Retreat: HOME Edition that I would do no writing until September 2021. This doesn’t count, because it’s just a little blog post! So great news, I’m succeeding.

DIY Writing Retreat – HOME Edition!

I did a thing!

It’s a companion guide to DIY Writing Retreat, with pandemic-friendly pep talks, writing prompts, retreat schedules, and rituals to make your home feel like a place you can write. You can buy it here, or you can get the original + the home edition for a dollar off. It’s a guide to getting away when you can’t…get away.

Take a retreat now! And may this guide be obsolete soon.

Cheers! And tell a friend.
