Under my guidance, you’ll manifest a strong creative writing practice and become the writer you want to be! During a series of hour-long sessions, you will receive highly detailed and constructive feedback and critique about the submitted work in question (poetry, fiction, plays, nonfiction/essays, college applications, etc) as well as a personalized plan for your writing practice going forward, strategic advice about writing programs (artist residencies, college writing programs, etc.) and applications, and a curated list of writing resources.
I am a graduate of Stanford University (Class of 2018) and studied comparative literature and Africana studies during my undergraduate years. My writing has been published in The Atlantic, The Huffington Post, Poets & Writers Magazine, The Academy of American Poets, and elsewhere. In 2013 I served as one of five National Student Poets, the nation’s highest honor for young writers presenting original work. Former First Lady, Michelle Obama invited me to the White House to garner my award. My writing has reached audiences all over the world, including Michelle Obama, Sarah Jessica Parker, poet laureates, prime ministers, National Book Award winners, and public intellectuals. I have extensive experience working with diverse groups of writers across the country, both in and out of classrooms. And my writing has traveled to places like Paris, Cape Town, London, Abidjan, and Jerusalem, just to name a few.
