Rose Gebken pursues both technical and creative writing. Her clients include businesses like The Parr Lumber Company and Reputation.com, as well as individuals. She has offered consulting services and marketing advice to entrepreneurs, academics, artists, and designers.

In the field of creative writing, she studied with poet Richard Speakes and memoirist Debra Gwartney, honing her skills in workshops and writing groups. Her writing covers the full spectrum from fiction to creative nonfiction.

Her fiction was recently published in the Spring edition of Omnibus, a literary journal. The online cultural magazine Propeller featured a piece of her nonfiction in April 2011.
