“As writers, the two feel it is exceptionally important to build relationships and readerships between people who might never find one another if they didn’t end up in the same workshop together.”


Hopefully you’ve made your way to our site because you are genuinely interested in growing as a budding or experienced writer, and are looking for a way to commit—or recommit—yourself to this important art form. We created PBC Writers (The “PBC” stands for Palm Beach County, if you were curious) to help you do just that.

We wanted to offer our own series of writing workshops and classes after teaching versions of both during our time in an M.F.A. in Creative Writing program, in which we mentored writers who were working in a wide range of genres and for a variety of projects, including novels, essay collections, poetry manuscripts, and almost everything in between. However, the workshops and classes we taught weren’t always able to offer “the right fit” for some of our students.

What we learned from this experience was that our students needed more. From those who are new to the art of writing, dusting off an old skill set, or working writers with piles of pages ready to be shared with an audience, we have designed courses that cater to participants at all levels of their writing journey. Most importantly, we are hoping to help build and grow a community of writers in South Florida. We are doing this because we love writing, mentoring, and sharing what we’ve learned about the art of poetry and prose.

Though our full-time university teaching schedules have us focused on leading online workshops and engaging with students through both short- and long-term one-on-one consultation relationships, we try to bring our students together for in-person gatherings whenever possible.

So, please feel free to peruse our site for more information about us, and we hope to help you with your writing very soon.

Yours,

Jamie and Nico
