I took a li’l break from teaching (for the most part) this summer, but am back to it now. Full details are here, but TL;DR details are here:
- I work with pretty much anyone (pro, full-time writers who want help on specific projects or developing their voice and/or style; new and emerging writers who are just developing their voice and/or style; any writer at all who wants help with some vision and planning in/for their careers, as it relates to pitching and working with editors and whatever else; non-writers who have that bug to write and want help with the basics, which may or may not include voice and/or, yes, you guessed it, style).
- I offer sessions that are three hours in total and include an initial discussion about what you’re working on and what you want to do with it (and then I spend some time with your work on my own, and prepare for the personal/personalized instruction session and write up a milli notes about your work) and then the session itself. The cost is $300 + HST, which is $339.00.
- The initial discussion and the personal instruction session can happen via phone or Skype, but right now I’m not doing in-person stuff because many times the scheduling and travel time got to be too much.
If you’re into that, or know someone who might be, email me at katecarraway at gmail. <3

Very poorly. But I’m not poor; I just never formed the habit of living, the way most people do. They know how bad for you living is, but they simply choose not to believe it. Instead, they wake up and, without a second thought, without knowing they are deciding, decide to live.
I am not one of these people. Every day I wake up and think why. I know I’ll decide to live like everyone else, but why, and why if I’m going to do it do I fail to do it automatically, as a habit, or why if I am addicted like the rest which I am and I know do I remain the kind of addict who believes each time she reaches for air that it’s her choice, that she wants this, that it’s not like she needs it, oh no, she could refuse it if she felt like it, but she doesn’t feel like it, no, it’s the last time, maybe, maybe not.
Given my relationship to air how do you think I fare with water? To answer your question, in a way.
my bambina, coming correct
I can write because my idea of “living” is usually different than yours.
Being anti-drugs (and, 90% of the time, anti-booze) and anti-unsafe-sex and anti-casual-meanness and anti-thoughtlessness and anti-assumptions and anti-random-no-big-deal-style-dishonesty can really make you seem anti-fun, I realize, but in actuality, it’s so much the opposite.
