Ed knows enough to know he doesn't know it all, not by a country mile. But in years of journaling, writing, and publishing, he's expanded his writer's toolkit and gained an ever expanding idea of what's interesting, what works, and how to tell a story. If you or you and a group would benefit from a writing workshop with Ed, please contact him. He'll be delighted to work with you.
