Research & Analysis:
Analytic projects are often collaborative and take many forms to serve their range of purpose. Robin’s work is both qualitative and quantitative, but most importantly, it arises from an ideal of improving the world around us.
Robin has recently joined forces with Jodi Reeves Eyre to form Eyre & Israel, providing research, analysis, and editing work, and management of collaborative writing projects.

Robin offers workshops on creative writing and the process of putting together an analytic writing project–generally in Phoenix or Tucson. These are posted on this site when they are open, but if you are interested when there aren’t any posted, please contact Robin. She may set up another one if it is needed!
