Services/ Opportunities I Offer for Game, Worthy, and Willing Fellow Writers, Learners, Lay People Needing Assistance —
Editing: This includes fiction, non-fiction, dissertations, reports, white papers, technical papers. I have more than 40 years experience working with individuals and organizations around communications and the written word, from Delphi Electronics to Planned Parenthood; I’ve helped individuals with their PhD research.
Tutoring: I have more than 40 years as a composition teacher at both the college level and for youth in alternative high schools. Writing is the backbone to modern society, and young and old have lost the ability to articulate who they are and what they know through decent, readable and cogent writing. As a tutor, I help individuals with essay writing and that includes composition, research writing using MLA, APA, AP, Chicago style, and with their own individualized writing needs tied to both education and their professional lives.
Community facilitation and events: I’ve worked for non-profits and schools to help coordinate large events as well as lecture series, author talks, teach-ins, and some land use charrettes.
Speaker: I am a fiction/ non-fiction writer, journalist, poet and subject matter expert who can work with any group on various topics of the day. That includes community engagement around media, sustainability, community planning, growth, the environment, and intersectionalities of poverty-race-gender-culture and the environment.
Photography: That’s more than 45 years as both an amateur/professional photographer. I have had solo and group shows. I can assist any individual or business with visually expressing their inner and outer selves as well as the unique qualities of the business’ vision and purpose.
Rates: This is a unique time in late stage capitalism. I am negotiable on all rates. They are project based, so a proposal will be drawn up after motivated interviewing by yours truly to the individual (s) seeking any of the above services. I am not John Grisham, so I am not asking for an arm and a leg when it comes to my services.
The Power of Environmental-Social-Cultural-Multi-Generational Justice
Our power comes from our ancestors standing behind us, holding us up to have the strength to face anything. As tribal people, we know that possession of the earth is not an actual thing, so we are using our power to protect the earth and water from the abuse and destruction of greedy corporations. Our stewardship of the earth has been passed down to us from thousands of generations that have done the same.
My little Inupiaq heart is both constricted and expanded for my brothers and sisters at Standing Rock. And I can feel in my bones that the voice of our people will be heard, and every American will join us in protecting the earth for generations to come, by defeating corporate greed and killing the black snake before it ever takes a breath.
