I have presented writing workshops for McNally Robinson, the Saskatoon Writers Co-op, Common Weal, the Saskatchewan Writers Guild, Moose Jaw Festival of Words, the Prince Albert Arts Centre, Prairie Regional Community College and writers groups in a variety of Saskatchewan cities and towns.
The workshops and classes I facilitate include Writing For Your Life, Writing Your Life Story, Journal Writing, Integrity and Courage in Writing, Poetry for the Scared Stiff, Writing Workshops for Children and Basic Creative Writing.

I have given a Journaling Workshop for the Deaf, working with a sign language interpreter. I have instructed, along with a professional photographer, a Photo-Journaling workshop at the P.A. Youth Outreach Program. I facilitated a series of creative writing workshops for inmates of Pine Grove Correctional Institute through Commonweal. I was Managing Editor and Non-Fiction Editor for Spring magazine. I compiled and edited a collection of stories of adults with acquired brain injuries. I facilitate a Writing for Your Life group with CMHA and have been “Writer on the Wards” at Victoria Hospital and completed a two-year term as Writer in Residence at the Prince Albert Library.
