Somewhere inside living the life of a poet, Judyth Hill grew the heart of a teacher. When I first set her and a select crew of New Mexico poets and writers loose teaching the Writing down the Bones timed writing process, Judyth took all the tools and went for it. Anyone that has heard her read poems, or seen her teach her classes, knows her passion for and commitment to poetry and her students. She has developed teaching into a deep art. WildWriting: The Dharma of Poetry shares her fresh way of looking at writing, her wild exuberance and enthusiasm for students, for poetry, for keeping alive the lineage of Poetry. The practices and exercise of WildWriting will bring people to the page with original depth and guide writers to follow their own passions onto the page.

Let’s Have a Cuppa…and….
I am available for private mentoring. I am happy to work with you in private, in person, online, by email…whatever way will benefit you in your writing/creative process!
If you are working with me online, by email, we write back and forth, with suggestions, praise and edits given and discussed…as seems to further the work best.
If we are co-creating your Dream project: your poetry book, your memoir, novel, essays, cookbook, travel book, children’s book, and so on, we work together to plan the project, and I help set goals, support the process with deep reading and respond as you write, and support you all the way, in every way!
I work with you to create your writing schedule, plan your approach, and stay on it! I help you WildWrite, and revise, and re-think as necessary. I help you choose a publisher, write your bio, marketing letter, and fulfill the submission guidelines for your selected publishers. Or – find an agent! We stay in continual connection and correspond until the book hits the bookstore!
Also we can GoogleChat or Skype, and set up appointments to meet in cyberworld! Have a cup of Cybertea! I have taken many poets through the entire process of editing their poems for a collection, putting the poems into an organic, sensuous and powerful; a river, if you will…of poems, helping figure out an appropriate publisher, writing the query letter and picking out the best poems to include in the approach. I have guided many authors of novels, creative non-fiction, and memoir, to Plan the Work…and Work the Plan! My gift is a blurb on the back cover!
I charge $125 an hour, which includes my reading time, and my written response by email, or our time in person, together. And I offer price breaks for 5, 10 and 20 hours purchased in advance.
