I’m TJ. I write books (and other things):
- This is the Story of His Life—
- In Order to Form a More Perfect Union
- Pilgrims: A Love Story
- Self-Helpless: A Misfit’s Guide to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness
- The Unmasked Tenor: The Life and Times of a Singing Wrestler (with Sam Tenenbaum)
I’m grateful to have seen my poems and stories (and other things) appear in a range of publications that I really admire. I also write marketing and development communications for arts and education organizations. Slip on over to the Commonplace (blog) to see what’s on my mind lately.
I make my living teaching.
Mostly what I teach is writing (workshops in poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and screenwriting) and literature. I work with all kinds of students, in all kinds of classroom environments — in K-12 settings, at colleges and universities, and in community arts programs.
I also help other people write books (and other things).
