You are “home,” and I am listening. I hope you will visit whenever you are looking for new paths leading from the paths you are already on as a writer.

In maintaining and expanding this site, I will make every effort to propose ways you can advance in the habits of presence that make it possible for you to feel and know “the stance of wonder” (John Berryman) in your art.

For over three decades I have been a learner-teacher.  With the Mentoring and Community Workshops and Manuscript Reading this site makes possible, I begin my next thirty years of passionate commitment to individual writers and to communities of writers. I ask that you help me place myself in the dynamic uncertainties in which I will challenge all my own first assumptions about writing and the teaching of writing.

Welcome to my workplace, to our workplace.

In joy,
