If you’re a frequent reader of the blog you know from this post, An Author’s Dream, Ekta is my editor and I was very lucky to get to meet her in person.
Ekta has a new project called Prairie Sky Publishing.
Thank you for visiting Prairie Sky Publishing! Go to the Contact page, join my mailing list, and embark on a special journey with me, the one to publication and a fantastic experiment. In February 2015 I’ll begin releasing short stories two at a time. I’m calling them “Stories in Pairs” and the stories in each pair share connections…but there’s more. To find out about the stories, their release dates, and other information, start exploring the site and become a part of this adventure with me.
I appreciate your time in coming to Prairie Sky today. I wish you well in your own writing journeys or wherever your life passions take you. More than anything I hope you can make Prairie Sky a part of your reading journey. Come fly with Prairie Sky Publishing…where stories soar!
Ekta R. Garg’s love affair with words began at the age of 4, and by the age of 8 she was writing poetry and short essays. In elementary school she participated in a word junkie’s ultimate past time: spelling bees. She won the South Carolina state title four times, the regional title once, and competed in two national level competitions, including the 1993 Scripps National Spelling Bee.
Her love for spelling supplemented her love for writing. Ekta was the co-editor of her high school yearbook for her junior and senior years. In college she worked briefly for the University of South Carolina campus literary magazine, The Garnet and Black, and in 2002 she got her MSJ in magazine publishing from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University.
Since the start of her career in 2005 Ekta has edited and written about everything from health care to home improvement to Hindi films. She has written for and edited: The Portland Physician Scribe, Portland, Oregon’s premier medical newspaper; show magazines for home tours organized by the Portland Home Builders Association; ABCDlady.com; The Bollywood Ticket; The International Indian; and the annual anthologies published by the Avondale Inkslingers, based in Avondale, Arizona.
In 2011 Ekta stepped off the ledge and became a freelancer. She edits short stories and novels for other writers, contributing to their writing dreams. She is also a part-time editor for aois21, and she reviews books for her own book review blog, The Write Edge Bookshelf, as well as NetGalley, TypeReel, and Bookpleasures.com.
Prairie Sky Publishing serves as the publishing arm of Ekta’s professional writing blog, The Write Edge. When she’s not writing, Ekta is a domestic engineer—known in the vernacular as “a housewife.” She’s married with two energetic daughters who keep her running, and she divides her time between keeping house and fulfilling her writing dreams.
