Publishing Resources!


My name is Kate, and I'm a writer.

I'm a native New Yorker, but I moved to Washington, DC, and got a BA in English and Creative Writing from The George Washington University in 2013. I now live and work full-time as an editor in Arlington, VA. In between fixing people's grammar, I write short stories.

I have a lot of varied experience in being published and working in publishing, so if you have any questions about how to get published or how to work in the industry, feel free to send me a note!

A real update is coming soon about the writers conference I was at last week (and I know a lot of you are dying to know how it was!), but until I can pull all of my many thoughts together, here's something to tide you over:


  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt? Over 9 years. :stare:

  2. What does your username mean? Mostly it means I thought mean ice cream was a funny concept when I was 15.

  3. Describe yourself in three words. Prickly but sweet.

  4. Are you left or right handed? Technically I'm a lefty, but my mom made me write with my right hand when I was a kid, and now I'm stuck like this. :laughing:

  5. What was your first deviation? Oh boy. Swear"Ann? Ann, are you okay?"
                    I blink. I've completely forgotten that Jess is here.
                    "What? Yeah, I'm fine." I give her my best smile, which isn't very much.
                    "If you say so," says Jess. The worry shows in her eyes. I hate that look. That look that makes me think that I'm made of glass.
                    I'm not made of glass.
                    "You look pale," Jess notes quietly.
                    I don't say anything, I don't even acknowledge her. I just pick up my brush and put mor

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create? Literature!

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be? Photography. Or, really, I wish I could draw anything besides stick people.

  8. What was your first favourite? The Divide by superflysanta

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most? I actually have no idea. In my time here overall, it's probably photography.

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist? I can't choose! :faint:

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be? Probably fallenidle and Snapperz, who have been with my since day one, basically.

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life? See above. They're the writer-sisters I never knew I wanted or needed.

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art? My laptop. Or the computer at work, which is where I do most of my writing these days, on my lunch break.

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art? I don't really have one right now. I've learned to entertain myself at work with writing, mainly because I have no windows and my walls are white. :no:

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory? My first DD was a pretty big deal -- it was some kind of validation from the universe that I was doing the right (write) thing. :slow:
