Programming Co- Chair
Angela M. Haigler burst into the writing world as a television reporter whose first job awaited her the week after college graduation (no small feat!) where she remained for two and a half years.
Seeking more adventure than career, Angela spent 10+ years each in the fields of student affairs and library marketing. Along the way, she dipped a toe in her first love, Creative Writing, obtaining an MFA in Fiction from Queens University of Charlotte in 2003, one of the program’s first graduates.
Angela is a writer, writing instructor, writing coach, award-winning communications strategist and the founder of Silverscrybe Communications & Consulting. She received a B.A. in Journalism from the University of South Carolina and an M.S. in the same from Iowa State University.
She brings 20+ years of experience creating communications strategies and sharing stories for news organizations, universities and nonprofits. Angela is devoted to writing and cultivating the creativity in others.
She taught Creative Writing at Central Piedmont Community College for 15 years where many of her students have gone on to become practicing and published authors. She currently teaches virtual writing boot camps and hosts writing retreats.
Her book reviews and articles can be seen regularly in Charlotte’s premier African American lifestyles magazine, Pride. Her work has also appeared in literary magazines produced by Charlotte Lit and Change Seven, and news publications such as Charlotte Observer, Creative Loafing and Library Journal.
Previous and current clients include Community Dream Builders, Arts & Science Council, Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, Ms. Real Estate Property Boss, Darrell Roach Designs, Shonda S. Caines, Vegan Fitness Chef and Omega Performance.
She is skilled in marketing and communications strategy, manuscript critique, ghost writing, social media content creation, media relations, email communications and many other writing and communications functions.
