Yes, you can hire me to enrich your project with historical research, community engagement, oral histories, writing, editing, branding, visual storytelling, campaigns, and project management services. I charge an hourly rate for these services, including early-stage strategy. Please email me for details.
Speaking Appearances & Panels
I’m always delighted participate in conversations with new audiences. I charge a minimum rate for speaking engagements, plus travel expenses. That said, I often waive fees or offer discounts for allies, nonprofits, startups, and the opportunity to sell books. Let’s discuss.
Creative Writing Workshops
I’ve led one-day workshops on community storytelling, literary placemaking, and mapping tools for writers at places like Decatur Writers Studio, local libraries, high schools, Georgia Tech, GSU, and SCAD. Follow me on Facebook to hear about upcoming workshops.
