Dayna Bennett 

Editing 101: How to Know When You’re Ready for an Editor 

Dayna Bennett is an editor, writer, and educator who has served on the advisory board for the Central Coast Writers Conference, where she taught workshops for beginning writers.

Her articles, short stories and essays have been published in online journals and local press.

She shares thought pieces and personal essays on her blog and has dabbled in poetry on her Instagram page:  Tiny Notes by DB.

As an editor, Dayna has helped writers of all backgrounds polish their prose and develop their stories for publication. Dayna’s first novel, A Light Left Behind, is a contemporary romance with hints of the supernatural.

Dayna lives on the Central Coast with her two kids, two dogs, and one furious cat. She believes in the power of storytelling and will always be an optimist at heart.


I hope to see you there!

President SLO NightWriters
