Darlene’s Desk

Welcome, writer.

I am so glad you’re here.

I’ve been where you are. I’ve been the writer who scribbles in the back of a notebook during stolen snatches of time.

If you’re here, you’re interested in leveling up craft and networking with writers of all levels.

I’m glad you’re here.

About me: I write. Like you, I have a vast history of writing in multiple genres and really wanted to write my whole life.

I know a lot of teachers who teach and I know a lot of writers who write. The ones I learned best from are the writers who teach because they write. That’s me – I practice what I teach.

Here I will be assembling tools to help writers, a collection of essays written by myself and guest bloggers, and eventually I’ll add my workshops [online and in person].

I am available as a writing coach, teacher, and inspirational speaker. If you’re interested in booking me for an event, please contact me.

Best,

Darlene
