About

An English teacher for twenty years, I have taught academic, business, and creative writing to college students and working professionals. My job has taken me all over the world and allowed me to work with and experience different cultures.

I presently run the New England Writers Guild, an organization that teaches writing workshops to help individuals reach their personal and professional goals. I also work as a book coach and help people with what they need most (character development and arcs, sequencing, editing, formatting, querying literary agents, etc.).

As a book coach, writer, and teacher, I run workshops to teach people how to write their stories and get them noticed. This summer, I am teaching a series called, "Imagine Your Story". Dates: July 8, 15, 22, 29 Days: Wednesday Time: 6:00-8:00pm EDT Whether you are interested in fiction, nonfiction, memoir, flash fiction, prose, sci-fi, fantasy, YA, or another genre, I will teach the foundational elements to make your story fluid, descriptive, and complete. The series is for writers at every stage of the writing process. You can expect to learn how to get your best ideas down on paper (or laptop), develop likeable or hated characters with one slightly redeeming quirk, chapter endings to keep your reader interested, and story arcs to name a few. You will also learn popular story structures, how to use show vs. tell, dialogue across writing genres, grammar and mechanics (not what you learned in high school), and how to develop your storyteller's voice (yes, it's really a thing). Because I'm a teacher who thinks notes are important, you will receive handouts with tips and links to help you long after the summer has ended. The link for the materials folder will be included on here as we get closer to July 8th. Each workshop is stand alone but also threads together so no worries if you are unable to attend consecutively. If you RSVP'd on here, great - your seat has been held! Once the workshop begins on that day, you won't be able to enter unless you registered before it started. Should you like individual feedback from the teacher (me) on your writing, you are encouraged to drop pieces (from the workshop series only) into this folder: https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/folders/1184FT3Xpuk3S-QlUif_dKcOQF_pFMtu8 Any questions please feel free to reach out on Meetup of Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/judith.walz.73/.
