About June Gillam
Author June Gillam teaches writing and literature at San Joaquin Delta Community College. She has studied the writing process for years and holds a PhD in Learning and Change in Human Systems from California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco. Her dissertation work explored learning and change in a small group of writers. The story of this project is told in her Creating Juicy Tales: Cooperative Inquiry into Writing Stories–A small group journeys through action/reflection cycles, a holistic methodology to improve craft, which can be purchased through Amazon.com
She earned a certificate from Stanford’s Novel Writing Program and offers a presentation giving Ten Tips from the program. June is a founding member of the San Joaquin Valley Writers branch of the California Writers Club and belongs to several other writing groups, among them Capitol Crimes, the Sacramento chapter of Sisters in Crime, and Gold Country Writers (GCW) in Auburn, California. She facilitates weekly meetings at Trinity Cathedral in Sacramento, which follow the guidelines of Pat Schneider’s Amherst Artists and Writers.
Working as an editor for a monthly magazine, for academic publications, and other similar jobs over the years has honed her editorial skills, as well. She has her own very small publishing company, Gorilla Girl Ink, which has released three of her books. She looks forward to publishing other writers’ works after she retires from teaching.
June loves taking time to chat with readers and writers and can be reached through this website.
