I’d be glad to serve as a writing coach for any writers out there. My fees will be reasonable and I will do a good job encouraging any writer who pays me $30 to read 2,000 words and then have a Skype session to comment on it. I’ve taught for many years and I think I’m good at this.
I am not interested in copy editing. If you don’t know the rules of grammar, don’t expect me to teach those. I am, however, interested in supporting you as you find your voice. There’s probably something you know and want to say that only you can, and I want to encourage you to find it. As far as I can see, giving yourself permission to create a voice and then let that persona speak is the obstacle most writers are trying to circumvent.
I’ve had several books published as well as many magazine articles. I received a Master’s of Fine Arts in Playwriting from the University of Iowa’s Playwright’s workshop in 1975 and then for most of my life, supported myself by writing, performing and teaching.

I live in Thailand, so I’m twelve hours ahead of most of you.

Hi, Dan. Since the demise of Writers Without Borders in Chiang Mai, I’ve been looking for a local writers group. Does Chiang Mai Writers Group hold regular meetings/workshops? Thanks. Looking forward to meeting you. Will
no, we never did anything with it after the first few meetings four years ago. I keep thinking someone will want to revive it. There used to be a big group up around nimmehammen, upstairs in a restaurant on a side street. Hard for us geezers to commit to anything.
