About Michael

About Michael
Writing is scary, stressful stuff sometimes. However, with the right tools and approach, it can also be hugely rewarding and therapeutic. I've been an English/Writing teacher for 10 years now, both at the high school and college levels, and I love helping people approach their writing assignments with confidence, calmness, and creativity.
