Welcome! I'm glad you're here.


Spilling the Ink Creative Writing is dedicated to cultivating writers’ voices and stories. We offer courses and coaching for people who want to write, love to write, intend to write, but  could use a little gentle prodding to get the words flowing.

Update July 2018: Spilling the Ink is on Hiatus until Fall 2019.

Hello! I've recently had some good fortune for my own writing that I'm delighted to share: I've been awarded the David T.K. Wong Creative Writing Fellowship at the University of East Anglia for 2018-2019. Among other things, this means that I'll have the time and space to write, write, write. I'm so looking forward to this opportunity to immerse myself in novel-writing and the evolution of a book. I wonder how the experience will inform my future writing and teaching.

AND, even though I'm not running my courses, YOU can still spill your own ink. Keep writing! Join groups! Listen to readings! Find a writing buddy! Fill notebooks! Believe in your stories! I hope to hear all about them soon.

Curious to hear some of my writing?

Here's an interview I did on Cambridge 105 with Leigh Chambers where I get to read a section of my story, Suite for My Father, and we chat about writing, writing groups, and Spilling the Ink.
