Teaching Experience

Teaching Experience
I've volunteered as a writing mentor with the organization WriteGirl for 1.5 years, meeting with a high school student weekly to tutor her through writing assignments and encourage creative writing practice. I also lead small groups of teenage girls in writing exercises at monthly workshops. In college I was an editor for my university's creative writing magazine and part of my role was to help writers edit and develop their work.
