Angie Pennington, MA
Clients laud Angie as being able to take complex ideas and make them “digestible.” She’s described as “engaging and fun.” One client even said that she “provided a great experience for a class I dreaded.” In fact, for many years, Angie thought she was a "bad writer" until she learned how to predict readers’ expectations, a skill she brings to every class she teaches.
Her experience as a writing teacher, tutor, researcher, and editor would lead you to believe she’s always felt a closeness to writing—but that couldn’t be further from the truth!

- Angie helps writers become better by teaching them how to write strategically in any context. Her background in Instructional Design Technology means she is always thinking about ways to make her classes more engaging, and she keeps a close eye on technologies that may make the writing process easier.
- Angie loves talking about the writing process; her copywriting and editing experience has given her a million and one tricks for idea generation.
