Deborah Carver is a content consultant, writer, editor, filmmaker, arts advocate, and digital darling who lives in South Minneapolis. She started off in publishing as an editorial intern, working in book and periodical publishing for nearly a decade, and then worked agency-side in digital marketing and content strategy. In 2010 she created Twin Cities Runoff, an online magazine that melded localism and longreads into one giant weekly writing-fest. She’s also been a content strategist, a marketing writer, a storyteller, an off-Broadway usher, a copy editor, a bread delivery girl, a pub wench, a graduate student, a barista, a seller of dog art, a craft cocktail server, and a teacher.
She is originally from Wilmington, Delaware, and often pronounces the word “water” like “wuh-trrr.” She lived in New York City and Charleston, South Carolina, before settling down in the Twin Cities.
