Editor, author and educator Susan Gabrielle is guest speaker at Sierra Writers’ monthly meeting from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Nov. 11.

Gabrielle, a freelance editor for almost 15 years, will cover the importance of hiring an editor, regardless of whether you plan to independently publish or find a professional publisher for your work.

As well, Susan will offer tips for first-draft editing and answer questions related to writing and publishing.

Gabrielle has enabled many writers to reach their publication goals.

As a professor of English at Yuba College, she emphasizes the importance of clarity in writing in order to reach one’s audience of readers.

Gabrielle has been published in “Capturing Shadows: Poetic Encounters Along the Path of Grief and Loss,” The Christian Science Monitor, The Baltimore Review, Heyday, Ayris, San Francisco Peace and Hope, and Sugar Mule, among others.

She was a winner in the CBWF Poetry Prize for Women.

She will offer a workshop through Sierra College on dreams and interpretation in February, and hopes to publish her book, “Writing Your Way into Dreamland,” next year.

The meeting will be at the Madelyn Helling Library Community Room, 980 Helling Way, Nevada City.
