Writers' Workshop Graduate Catherine Knepper Helps Authors Get Published

Catherine Knepper, a 2004 Iowa Writers' Workshop graduate, has found a somewhat unorthodox way to put her education to use. She has started her own business in Des Moines, Catherine Knepper Ghostwriting, from which she now edits and ghostwrites. She states that it is extremely difficult for an unknown writer to get published and finds helping such individuals very rewarding. Most of the business she gets is from word of mouth and referrals from agents. Having opened just last August, Knepper states that she has already had to turn people away; a situation she believes is due to the changing publishing environment.
