Channie has been teaching writing in university or private settings for more than 35 years.


Channie is the real deal!  If you enjoy creative writing, I urge you to take a class with her.  She is a teacher/writer with street cred and, what’s more, a hibernaculum of imaginary hedgehogs.  You will be surprised by the fun you will have and what you can accomplish in just one of her courses. - D. Carlyle, Winnipeg, Canada


Channie has 15 small press books published and several others under contract. She’s a four-time Pushcart Prize Nominee and a National Endowment for the Humanities scholar.


I am so gratified by Channie’s positive and encouraging responses. My online course with her was the most amazing, often grueling, and deeply instructive course I have taken since who-knows-when! I have grown immeasurably in whatever skills I have merited gaining. It has been an honor to learn from the very best! I am grateful. - Devorah Druxman, New York City.


Channie has been an editor for scholarly or literary periodicals for more than 30 years.


Channie is like a good parent. She encourages you when you do well but will also let you know when you are going astray. Best of all, she has a unique way of teaching that forces you to learn even when you are resistant.

- Joan Gross, Nahariya, Israel.


Hannah has been selling her writing since 1975. She can empower you with skills that enable you to sell yours.
