Kim White develops online games, interactive tutorials, e-books, blogs, and websites for Bedford/St. Martin’s. She came to Bedford/St. Martin’s from the Institute for the Future of the Book, a small think tank affiliated with the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School, where she studied the future direction of learning tools and academic discourse in the digital age. She earned her MFA in fiction writing from Columbia University and had a prior career as an art director. Her combined knowledge of emerging media, narrative structure, visual design, and project management—and the year she spent in the trenches teaching first-year composition—helped her guide the development of Peer Factor.
