Upcoming Teaching Events


My coaching and classes for writers are lively, fun, and informative. If you don’t believe me, check out my Testimonials.

Join the Tuesday morning Writing About Your Life and Your Family course at the Belmont, Massachusetts Senior Center. It will begin on Tuesday, September 6, and run from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. Call (617) 993-2977 to sign up. The cost is only $55.00 for six (6) 1.5 hour sessions (one session per week). It’s a great class; you’ll be surprised at how much you’ll enjoy it and how much you’ll learn.

I’ll again be teaching a free Memoir and Life Story Writing course at Robbins Library, in Arlington, Massachusetts. (It’s a great deal!) The classes will be held on six (6) consecutive Thursday evenings, from 6:00 – 7:30, beginning on October 13. I’ll post the phone number to call for information and the signup information by September 15.

I’ll again be teaching the free Teen Creative Writing course at Robbins Library, in Arlington, Massachusetts. (Another great deal!) Six (6) alternating Monday evenings from 6:00 – 7:30, beginning on September 19. I’ll post the phone number to call for information and the signup information by September 15.

We will be holding a free 6-week Teen Creative Writing course at the Belmont Library, from 2 – 3:30, beginning on Wednesday, October 19. That course might already have filled up, but there’s a waiting list. You can check on your chances to get into the class by calling the Young Adult Librarian, Kylie Sparks, at 617.993.2873.

If you’re skeptical about taking any of these classes, look over my Testimonials to see what my students, colleagues, and clients say about working with me. Also note that I’ve taught these courses before and I’m always invited back to teach them again. And to toot my horn just a little more, the majority of my students continue to work with me on their projects year after year.

If you want individual help with your creative writing projects, let’s talk. To learn about that or to find out more about any of the classes I teach, just use the Contact tab above to send me an email.

I hope we’ll be in touch soon.

  1. Hi, Lynette…didn’t have an email address for you, but wanted you to accept my thanks for the knowledge and experience you share with us in the group still in session at the Waltham Senior Center; so many pieces of info I’ve not even thought about since high school days..slowly returning to the front of my mind.

    I have a conflict for the Friday, Nov. 13th 1:30 timeslot and cannot be present at that time; will definitely be there for Nov. 18th session at 1pm for the Bentley students and then continue with your program. Take Care…LuLu

  2. Hi, Renee:

    Thanks for your comment. I just took a quick look at your web site. You wouldn’t happen to have some suggestions for getting rid of hot flashes? I’ve suffered from them for years! Tx.

    – Lynette

  3. I’ll be teaching at Arlington Senior Center in April, Lexington Minuteman in May. Still teaching in Waltham and Westwood. How are you?

    I’m sending you Polish and Publish. Enjoy.

  4. Are you the Lynette I knew and loved in the 70s as a colleague at the dysfunctional CCED? Will be at your Robbins Library/Arlington presentation. Can’t believe I found you after all these years! I write too, and am looking for courage.


  5. Hi Lynette,

    I’ve been checking out your site, and I love so many of the things you’ve said about writing memoir. I see you follow your inner guidance about how to write. I’ll bet you are a great teacher.

    I’d love to hear more about your memoir “My Mother’s Money.” Sounds like a fresh idea—your life of course, and difficult material to unearth, but still a surprising filter through which to explore the past and tell a story.

    Hope this reaches you. Could not find another way to contact you.

    All my best,
    Lisa Dale Norton

  6. Thank you, Lisa. I *am* a great teacher, and as I told you, I use your book in my classes! 😉 I also retweet your sensitive wisdom about writing memoir. I’ll be in touch with you directly through email.

  7. I was wondering if you would be available to look over some of my writing
    privately. I have gathered many documents, photos,and stories over the years and would like to put them into a memoir as a gift for each of my grandkids. My daughter (who is a writer) tells me to just keep writing every day. However, it seems that I have volumes of written pages! I need help putting them together in a way that will be interesting and informative. Do you do that sort of thing? private coaching? (or whatever you call it.)

  8. Hi,
    It was nice blogs!!!!!!!!!
    Teaching is my favorite from my childhood. I want to be a good teacher. Teachers need to pull together and make the community and themselves acutely aware that “I’m a teacher, I touch the future!”

  9. Hi, I’m taking a chance writing, because I’m not too sure, I have the right person.
    If you have a sister & brother named Andrea & Mallard, we are related (cousins).
    I didn’t see any other way to contact you.
    Please let me know.
    Charlotte (Brown) Vick
