Kim J Gifford
I am people oriented and enthusiastic. As a writer myself I know the struggles my clients and students face. My analytical ability helps me to easily assess a manuscript and my enthusiasm and passion for the subject help me to ask the right questions and guide you along.
Since I graduated from Middlebury College in 1990 with a degree in Religion, I have been writing as a career on just about any topic imaginable including the kitchen sink, literally. I worked as a memoir writing instructor for almost 15 years at Lebanon College in Lebanon, N.H. until it closed and since then have worked at various art centers such as AVA Gallery and Artistree, senior centers, and the Writing Center in White River Junction, VT teaching memoir and creative writing. I also work as a developmental editor helping clients bring manuscripts to fruition. When it comes to teaching I am adept at working with a variety of populations from teens to seniors and combined groups as well. I am presently working on a collection of short stories as well as my own memoir. I also hold a Master's Degree from Vermont College at Norwich University in Creative Writing and religion.
