Workshops & Teaching

In 2013, Susanna co-founded the MADISON WRITERS' STUDIO with award-winning author Michelle Wildgen, with the goal of bringing high-quality writing instruction to the Madison, Wisconsin area.

Today, MWS offers an array of nonfiction workshops for writers of fiction and creative nonfiction, oral storytellers, and novelists.

We believe every writer deserves respect, close reading, and thoughtful feedback -- and we aim to provide it. Learn more.

Coaching & Editing

Susanna works one-on-one with writers of short stories, essays, novels, and memoirs. She'll coach a writer from the idea stages to the finished book, or she'll partner with a writer to edit a draft. She excels at honest, nuts-and-bolts feedback, clear revision strategies, and encouragement. Contact Susanna to get started.
