Monday Morning Writing Group resumes at the Edmonds Library on Jan. 6 with a writing session at 10 a.m., led by Janette Turner, and a talk at 11 a.m. by Sarah Kishpaugh. Kishpaugh is an Edmonds-based freelance editor, writer, and writing teacher. Her publications include the New York Times, Salon.com, and Brainline.org.
Kishpaugh said that her talk, Crafting the Compelling Personal Essay, ”will look at choices in creating a narrative structure that draws readers in through the use of devices like reflection, focus, compressed time, metaphor, and braided story lines. I will share insight into the writing and revision process, as well as venues for submitting for publication.”
Ms. Kishpaugh has produced television for KCTS 9, and teaches Creative Writing through Edmonds Community College’s community education program. She is a graduate student in the masters of fine arts program at Goddard College in Pt. Townsend, WA, where she is working on a collection of short stories. She has worked as an editor on projects for technical projects for Microsoft and has a journeyman’s book-editing expertise. Find out more about Sarah at her website.
