I am a freelance writer and teacher, currently teaching Communications at Conestoga College in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. I taught high school English for over 15 years and can analyze Shakespeare and parse a sentence with the best of them. I have a freelance writing business and write for the Web and for national and local publications. You can find out more about my freelance career at http://wrightwriter.com/.
I love working with young writers and for four years had a how-to-write column in What If? Canada’s Creative Teen Magazine. I’ve done many school visits and workshops, and can’t imagine a life without talking to young people about writing. I love watching them get motivated and empowered and reading the great work that they produce.
I am a member of the Canadian Society for Children’s Authors, Illustrators, and Performers, the American Society for Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, the Canadian Authors Association, and the Ontario Council of Teachers.
