Barbara currently teaches two private workshops in her studio in Corona del Mar. The Writers’ Block Party is a critique group that meets bi-monthly on Thursday nights. It’s for writers who have taken writing classes or workshops and need in-depth feedback from group members for fiction or memoir writing projects. Occasionally there is an opening for an advanced fiction or memoir/essay writer, so don’t be afraid to ask.

The other is the Literary Posse and it’s for writers at various levels. Classes include exercises, optional assignments, craft and marketing discussions, and critique. This workshop is geared toward building confidence and getting you focused and in motion so you write what you’re meant to write.

Both are ten-week workshops and each costs $400.

Throughout the year, Barbara teaches a “Jumpstart Your Writing” online class through Gotham Writers’ Workshop. No matter where in the world you live, you can work with Barbara. Visit Gotham’s Web site for more information on the class and how to sign up.

Barbara mentors writers privately, consults with clients on book proposals, and critiques ongoing writing projects, both fiction and nonfiction.

She also speaks to groups, moderates and sits on panels at author events, and visits book clubs/reading groups in person, on Skype or on the phone, and via email.
