I’m a published writer of articles, essays, and blogs, under my own name and several pseudonyms. At this website (Tools & Tactics for Writers), you can check out the categories in the list on the right and choose the kind of writing info (or amusement) you want.
(I’m also The Stylish Ole Woman. For the time being, you can see those posts on this blog, too. By the end of October 2013, it’ll be moved to its own website.)
My home base is Arlington, Massachusetts, but I’ve worked with writers as far away as Canada and Slovenia.
Check out the Upcoming Teaching Events tab above to see the writing classes I’ll be teaching in the Fall of 2013. They’re varied and really fun. You’ll learn a lot and laugh a lot.
All of the classes I teach are subsidized, so they’re either free or very inexpensive.
My students range in age from 12 to 92. They are life story and memoir writers, essayists, mystery novelists, journal writers, and poets. Most have been taking classes with me for years (maybe because I always bring pastries to the last class).
Starting this fall (2013) I taught a class in blogging “Write a Great Blog.” I’ll probably teach another, after the first of the year.
I do copywriting for businesses, edit manuscripts, coach clients in their business and creative writing, and work with young people to strengthen their writing skills.
If that’s not enough, I’m in the final editing stages of two of my own memoirs.
One’s My Mother’s Money—a nail biter. The other is about the trials of working for 11 bosses (two were quite insane—I mean, unpleasant) in 11 years in a single institution.
Bachelor’s in English; Master’s in Communications Management, and I’ve taken two dozen writing classes myself. I’ve worked in for profit, nonprofit, and higher ed institutions, as director of large- and small-scale internal and external marketing communications projects.
For tons of writing tips and information, follow me on Twitter @lynettebenton.
I enjoy working with business and creative writing clients who want to learn and grow as writers, even if I’m only editing their work.
