Meet Mary and Kathy at TurnStyle Writers

TurnStyle offers serious help for serious writers.

Whether you write fiction or nonfiction, writing is all about telling stories that engage, surprise, and stimulate. For six years, TurnStyle founders Mary Buckner and Kathy Rhodes have been assisting Nashville writers to find their voices and tell their stories. Services are customized for each individual, ranging from one-on-one coaching and editing to full co-writing and re-writing. Both Mary and Kathy love to share their passion for the written word.

Mary (M.M.Buckner) is the award-winning author of five novels, two memoirs, and a young-adult collaboration. Her work has been published in five languages and well received on three continents. Mary holds a Master’s in Creative Writing from Boston University.

Kathy is author of two book-length memoirs, and her essay, “An Open Letter,” was singled out for review in The New Yorker. She has organized and taught at various creative nonfiction conferences and served as editor of two literary journals. Kathy holds a BA in English and Education from Delta State University, where she won the Annie Caulfield Winston Writing Award, and she did graduate studies at the University of Memphis.
