She recently completed Harry Rickett’s Creative Nonfiction Workshop, and was a member of Dinah Hawken’s Writing the Landscape Workshop in 2002. She has edited countless non-profit newsletters and corporate reports, but this is the first time she’s edited a literary journal. She likes this much better.
