ABOUT mockler's writing resources
Mockler's Writing Resources started as a private writing school in 2017.
I no longer offer private coaching, mentorships, and workshops.
This site is still a hub for film, screenwriting, and literary resources. You can also sign up for Send My Love to Anyone, a newsletter on all things writing by Kathryn Mockler and guests.

From Western News, 2012
Kathryn Mockler makes students’ writing come alive.
Whether in the numerous courses she has developed – Out of the Book: Creative Writing in the Digital Age and Renewing Your Poetic Licence – or in her mentoring of students, Mockler makes creative writing real. Her real-world sense of the value of writing means she’s as engaged in the classroom as she is at her own writing desk.
“One has to remember her teaching involves being critical of students’ most personal and prized creative endeavours,” Michael Milde, Arts and Humanities acting dean, said. “She gives them a hard time – and they like it. That takes real skill.”
