I created two six-week creative writing courses (Level 1 and Level 2), which I have taught several times through Louis Riel School Division Continuing Education.

I have modified and taught the 10-week creative writing course offered by Red River College Continuing Education.

I’ve also taught short (three or four week) classes on creative writing for older adults, through an organization called Creative Retirement Manitoba.

I have been a participant since 2008 in the Artists in the Schools program of the Manitoba Arts Council, in which working artists from a variety of disciplines lead art-creation residencies of at least one week. For several years, I led play creation residencies, but more recently I have revamped my program to fit my current interests and practise in fiction writing.
