Writing, Higher Education, & Related Consultation Services

Below, click on the appropriate link to book consultation or advising services. My research and teaching are fueled by a belief in equitable, open access distribution to combat cultural and financial "gatekeeping" practices. My goal is to pass along the tips, emotional-intellectual mentorship, "hacks," and demystifying knowledge that faculty and colleagues have given me. I have only received the education, fellowship, grants, and publication opportunities that I have because of key faculty advisors walking me through each step so that I could get into higher education programs, much less succeed across creative writing, academic, and non-profit spheres. Sharing these tips, tricks, hacks, and mentorships allows me to "pay it forward."


To that end, prices are suggested, but sliding scale options – including free and "barter" systems – are available. I am especially open to volunteering my services for historically marginalized folx that University systems and publication avenues continue to exclude. Please send an email to inquire if pricing is a barrier for you. All funds from bookings go toward securing time and technology resources for The Poetry Vlog. Successful booking is subject first and foremost to my availability during the academic year and summer quarters.
