Wyoming paper hires Willmon as editor

Mysti Willmon

Mysti Willmon has joined the Kemmerer Gazette as an editor. She says:

“I’ve had an interesting journey that has led to newspaper work. When I first started college, I was going to get a literature degree and thought I would like to work in the publishing business as I am an avid reader. I own 300 books and I usually read 40 to 50 books a year. But I discovered I loved writing just as much as reading. I have been editing friends’ papers since the 8th grade and loved doing it. I started taking journalism classes and loved them, so I chose to change my degree plan.”

Willmon is also editor-in-chief of The Western Front.

Previously, she was with Klipsun Magazine where she worked first as a reporter and then as copy editor. She has also interned at Bellingham Alive Magazine and served as a reporter at Excellence in Journalism Conference.

Willmon has a bachelor’s degree in English, journalism, news/editorial, and creative writing from Western Washington University.
