For over 30 years, Julie has taught at and/or been a visiting writer at colleges, universities and conferences in both Canada and the U.S, including Concordia University (Montreal), The Frost Place (NH), Vanderbilt University (Nashville, TN) and Pixar Animation Studios, in Emeryville, CA, among others. Recently, she's been a (virtual) guest poet in classes SUNY/Stony Brook and The University of Tennessee (Knoxville).

Since 2005, she’s taught classes for The Writing Salon in San Francisco. These classes have included 5 and 9-week workshops, 6-month advanced classes, and an annual 9-week class on revision for poets.

Julie also runs a private 9-week workshop, and works with individuals poets to guide and/or edit groups of poems or full manuscripts.

                                         Coming up:

Julie will be at the Writing Salon in November, 2024 for a 5-week Fearless Poetry workshop on Sunday afternoons in San Francisco—it's been great to be back in person! (Check the Writing Salon's website for fall classes).

The 2024 Spring private online workshop is wrapping up. I'll be taking the summer off, but the workshop will restart in early September, 2024. It's unlikely there will openings for this fall, but you can always join the wait list for openings in the future. Things can and do change, so do reach out if you're interested. Contact:
