Dr. Kimberly Angle

Chair of the English Department
Dr. Kimberly Angle (Ph.D. University of South Carolina; M.A. Georgia State University; B.A. Mercer University) came to Montreat College in the fall of 2007 to direct the creative writing program. Dr. Angle’s philosophy of teaching can be expressed in the words of one of her favorite mentor-writers, Brenda Ueland: “I am blessed with a fascinated, inexhaustible interest in all my pupils. This is what I [have] learned: everybody is talented, original and has something important to say.” Her writing courses at Montreat are designed for students to explore a variety of forms and cultivate individual voice and vision. Varied experiences in writing conferences, workshops, working with editors, and just plain writing over the years have equipped her to help writers accomplish their personal goals. Dr. Angle’s writing has been published or anthologized in Crossroads: A Southern Culture Annual, The Chattahoochee Review, South Carolina Wildlife, The Flannery O’Connor Bulletin, Weavings: A Journal of the Christian Spiritual Life, Literary Mama: Readings for the Maternally Inclined, Stories from Where We Live: The South Atlantic Coast and Piedmont, and Skirt, among others. Kimberly Greene Angle’s novel, Hummingbird, was nominated for the Georgia Children’s Book Award, The Children’s Crown Award, and was featured on the “Teens Reed Too” website as a favorite book of television celebrity Miranda Cosgrove.
