‣ What Is Thurber House?

Founded in 1984, Thurber House is a nonprofit literary arts center, James Thurber museum, historic landmark, and gathering place for readers, writers, and artists of all ages.






Nita helps writers (and others) become more prolific, find their authentic material, break writer’s block, and make time to write. She works with writers at any stage of the writing and publishing process. Nita is available for individual assistance, workshops and speaking engagements. She does not give legal advice because she has forgotten all the answers.

Nita has written professionally since 1985. She is the award-winning author of the running and mental health memoir, Depression Hates a Moving Target, and the nonfiction manual, Make Every Move a Meditation, and coauthor of the writing journal, You Should Be Writing. Nita received a degree in Magazine Feature Writing and a Certificate in Women’s Studies summa cum laude from Ohio University’s E.W. Scripps School of Journalism. She received a law degree from The Ohio State University and a Master of Fine Arts degree in creative writing from Goddard College. After retiring from ten years of legal practice, Nita began studying extensively with best-selling author Natalie Goldberg. Nita has attended more than 20 of Goldberg’s week-long workshops and retreats, worked individually with Goldberg, and taught with Goldberg at the workshops. Nita is also a certified mindfulness instructor and meditation leader with 30 years of practice. She brings the spirit of mindfulness to her coaching and teaching. She has published essays, magazine and newspaper articles, poetry, edited a prior newsletter, and contributed to several books. She is the retired publisher of Write Now Columbus.
