Originally from the Atlanta area, Kate’s approaching her five year Brooklyn anniversary and lives with her wife, a cranky tuxedo cat, a co-dependent chiweenie, and what may or may not be a small farm taking over her kitchen. She tells stories about the sticky corners of gender and sexuality; complicated families; and magical animals. On her days off she can usually be found hiking, volunteering with Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue, or re-watching nature documentaries. She’s currently pursuing an MFA in Fiction at The New School where she is also the Readings and Community Development Assistant. Her work has appeared in Witness Magazine, Longleaf Review, Pidgeonholes, X-R-A-Y Literary Magazine, and elsewhere.
