One more workshop presenter! Meet Kim:
Kim Taylor Blakemore writes historical novels that feature fierce and often dangerous women. She writes about the thieves and servants, murderesses and soiled doves, grifters and dancehall girls – the women with darker stories, tangled lies and hidden motives.
Her adult debut in historical mystery, The Companion (Lake Union Publishing) was lauded by Publisher’s Weekly as “a captivating tale of psychological suspense.” She is also the author of Bowery Girl and the WILLA Literary Award winner for her YA novel Cissy Funk. Her novel After Alice Fell will be released by Lake Union in January 2021.
She has taught creative writing workshops in the Portland area since 2010. Classes are experiential, with writing exercises and feedback focused on skills that strengthen prose and story. Her workshops are geared at a range of writers, from beginning to published, and workshops benefit writers of novels, short stories, memoirs and creative nonfiction.
