Public Speaker / Lecturer

I teach a wide variety of writing-related courses and workshops: anything from breaking into freelance writing, newsletter workshops, and inspirational talks to women’s groups and underrepresented students interested in a science or writing career. I have been a visiting lecturer, workshop leader, or panelist at conferences, universities, and writing groups. I’m an instructor for the UC San Diego Extension program, where I teach introductory and advance science-writing courses. 

Please email me if you'd like to invite me to give a talk or teach a workshop.
