Are you someone who:
Has always wanted to write for publications and have no f’n clue how to get started and/or pitch?
Has wanted to go up at The Moth or any storytelling show and have no idea how to do that?
Are about to turn in a final draft or go on stage soon and want professional feedback so you feel more confident and/or don’t look like a jackass?
I’ve written all these articles so far and have many more in the works. This one went super-viral, got me my current agent, and resulted in publishing houses asking me to expand it into a book. Another piece I wrote got me in the British tabloids and led to inquiries from agents. Also, I wrote this guide. Here are some of my podcasts. I’ve been on the Risk! podcast nine times already, including these two-hour-long stories (my most personal story yet and this one about masculinity). My articles also led to multiple literary agents reaching out to me... which then led me to sign with the amazing JL Stermer at Next Level Lit in NYC.
I took storytelling and writing classes from some of the best teachers in NYC and LA so I was lucky. But in terms of pitching and writing for big magazines and newspapers, I’m mostly self-taught. I could have gotten my career off the ground a decade sooner had I not done this and sought a coach instead. Let me save you time so you can get results way faster than I did.
I’m fun to work with and I’m brutally honest, but I won’t make you feel bad. We’re all vulnerable artists and we don’t need bullying assholes.
Many of my students have sold the first (and even second!) pitches they've ever written to major international publications like Huffington Post and Harper's Bazaar. See testimonials to read about their experiences with me in their own words.
