Welcome to Brooklynstan, my borderland home between right and left brain, east and west, familiar and foreign.
Bursting to tell a story? I combine structure and systems with creative ideas and intuition to help people write.
Roohi provided exactly the kind of high-concept fundamentals that I needed to give my work structure and direction. She gave me the tools to be able to be able to think deeply and critically about my own work. As a result I am able to apply far greater critical rigor to my work. I now have the tools to make sure that my writing is working as hard as it can in pursuit of my story's development, my characters' development and the book's eventual resolution.

I came to Roohi with a collection of short stories that didn’t feel finished. This collection was weighing on my heart because I wanted to tell these stories on a way that would be effective, powerful and reach my target audience. After several months of working with Roohi, I have finally found my voice. She’s so good at targeting the points in my writing that need work and providing concrete solutions.

What's New

I’m thrilled to join the faculty of the Sag Harbor Creative Nonfiction Writers Conference – a three-day nonfiction extravaganza in November, 2017. Join my workshop!

‘Tis the summer of writing! I’m spending a large chunk of this summer and early fall revising my novel at various residencies. First, I head to the Djerassi Resident Artist Program among the redwoods in California for a month. Then I’ll be at St. John’s University for a week-long workshop at the Collegeville Institute. Finally, I’ll be at the Marble House Project in Vermont for three weeks. Phew! Feel free to ask me about any of these places if you are interested in a residency of your own!
