Hi, Creative Lifer.
I'm Amanda. I'm an essayist and educator who helps you shape the work of your creative life.
Below, you can join my community of Creative Lifers to get tips on getting more creative work done more consistently.
And check out my annual writing retreat on the Isle of Skye, Scotland, where writer gals gather to get more done together.
I knew I was meant for more. I had important work to do.
A few short years ago, I was a struggling writer and adjunct instructor, smothering under the weight of my student loan debt. After much soul searching, I defined my dream and pursued a new story for myself. I paid off $48,000 of student loan debt in 14 months, and became a full-time professor.
I crafted a creative life I want to sustain.
I'm living a life story I love.
I want to help you do the same.
