- What IS the difference between poetry and spoken word?

- How does your own work inform your teaching?
- You seem to have a talent for drawing expression out of people who want to write but haven’t had much previous success at it. What’s the secret to getting it all to flow?
- Have you ever found that someone’s work is painful, either to them or to the group? How do you deal with that?
- Of the people who intend to write memoir, how often to you find it morphing into something else?
- Is self-expression always therapeutic?
- What are the challenges of performing your writing or your stories?
- How can our listeners get in touch with you?
