I draw on nearly 20 years of international teaching experience to offer writing workshops to writers at every stage of their craft, with tools, insights, expansive exercises, and supportive interactions. I love doing workshops and work hard to have participants leave inspired and energized for their writing journeys.

Typical workshops are short, a couple hours: long enough to generate great ideas and new directions, but short enough to fit busy schedules. Exercises, handouts, discussion and small group work, are designed to serve writers (and aspiring writers) of multiple genres: fiction, non-fiction, memoir, poetry, and personal communications of all kinds.

I’ve designed workshops for writer guilds, church groups, K-12 classes, Road Scholar (Elderhostel), and ESL/EFL groups and the general writing public.

With a long client list for professional writing of speeches, websites, training programs, documentaries, articles, brochures, and proposals, I have also designed and delivered professional writing seminars & workshops to corporate & non-profit groups.

Past workshop topics workshops include:
Developing Characters
Improving Dialogue
Writing About Family
Research Tools & Techniques for Writers
How Can Agents Help?
Writing About Awakening
What’s Your Point of View?
The Magic of Revision
Writing Your Journeys
Making Sense with Your Senses
Using Myth, Legends, and Fairy Tales as Writing Tools

Recent Review
“Absorbing and layered with rich historical details, in Under the Same Blue Sky, Schoenewaldt weaves a tender and at times, heartbreaking story about German-Americans during World War I. With remarkable compassion, the author skillfully portrays conflicted loyalties, the search for belonging, the cruelty of war, and the resilience of the human spirit.”—Ann Weisgarber, author of The Promise and The Personal History of Rachel Dupree
