What is the Studio?

The Studio, named after my first book Blackbird, was born from time as a student when I felt baffled by how little accessible instruction I received in college and workshops. I often wondered, “What do these people know that they are not telling me?” The Studio provides practical advice about POV, structure, plot, antagonistic forces, sentence construction, dialogue, character development, flashbacks, and scene vs. exposition. Everything I teach is broken down to help you understand and grow into the best writer you can be. I call it an MFA level literary program without the MFA price tag.
