At the age of ten, Corbin wrote her memoir, A Week Old to Ten and has been in love with personal narrative ever since. In 2000 she became the editor of Verve, a magazine for entrepreneurial women wanting to make a difference (and money) with their businesses. Rather than a red pen editor, she realized she was a midwife of stories and began working with individuals and organizations helping them craft and share their stories with the world.
She has helped hundreds of writers achieve their publishing goals and has created websites, brochures, press releases, business proposals and feature articles for dozens of businesses. She also works with teens helping them with organization, brainstorming, and other writing skills needed for school assignments or college essays. She has been trained in the Wired for Reading technique for working with students with dyslexia.
She is the author of PNBA and WA state Book Award nominee Creating a Life (Catalyst Book
Press) as well as three other titles. Her essays have been published in over twenty five publications including Hip Mama, Seattle PI, Stories with Grace, Mothering, Midwifery Today, Parent Map, and several parenting and writing anthologies. She haphazardly and occasionally blogs here.
She holds a Master’s degree in Education and has been an instructor and frequent key note speaker at writing venues such as Richard Hugo House, Write on the Sound, Whidbey Writers Conference, Write in the Harbor Conference, and Fields End. She hosts a free monthly storytelling night (Moth style) in Greenwood.
