Poet. Content Writer. Writing Coach. Reader. Since childhood, Dawn has been fascinated by words and the paths they take to form stories both fictional and true.
Dawn has worked as an advertising copywriter and freelancer before working in the admission office of an independent school and as a middle-school English teacher. She has also worked as an adjunct, taught ESL and middle-school writing workshops, and as the associate director of a M.A./M.F.A. Creative Writing program and assistant to the President at Wilkes University. She’s always ready for a road trip to give or attend a reading. She loves live music and to talk poetry and writing, or swap recommendations for movies and books.
In 2017, she left the 9-5 world to leap into self-employment and hasn’t looked back. Whether she’s putting one word in front of the other or helping other writers begin or revive a writing project, her work happy place is surrounded by words. She also creates and leads online writing groups and in-person writing retreats.
