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 in Arlington, VA.

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!

EDIT 4/18/14: Just a very quick edit to post this:

1945 by SadisticIceCream

My new tattoo! It's finally stopped looking scabby and gross, so I had my boyfriend take a picture. :giggle: It's a little stretched out because of how my neck was positioned, but you get the idea. The font is New Caledonia.

1945 is the year my grandpa was discharged from the Army. He was a World War II veteran, and though he pretty much never talked about his service (I only found out after he died that he'd served in Italy and Northern Africa), he received several medals, including a Purple Heart. While I'm proud of what he did, I'm also glad he came home -- not only because I obviously wouldn't exist if he didn't, but also because he basically raised me when my parents did seem to want or have the time to. He taught me more things that have shaped my life and who I am today than I can even begin to name. And when he died my freshman year of college, I was devastated.

And so, even though he'd probably beat the living crap out of me if he saw, I'd gotten a tattoo -- I got a tattoo to honor him. :D

Oof -- as usual, it's been a while. I'm posting because I have exciting news: "Circuits," which is a story some of you might remember, has finally found a forever-home with The Labletter, and can be found here. The fiction editor was also so kind as to put up with my rambling, and so there's also an interview about my writing process, what inspires me, and how I came up with this weirdass story in the first place. I know a lot of people really loved this story, so I'm glad it's back on the internet for people to look at, especially everyone who commented on it back when it was still in its draft stages. :)

I've just gotten back from a business trip in Boston, where my job had our national conference. 10,000 people registered, which was awesome and so tiring. :faint: I used some of my downtime to get a really early jump on looking at grad schools, so I went to check out Emerson (which reminded me far too much of NYU for me to like it, since I have this awful visceral reaction to NYU) and Boston University (which I liked better, but I'm pretty sure I made an idiot of myself when I popped in to pick up lit because the program admin asked me if I had any questions, and of course I drew an enormous blank). Boston isn't my favorite city, partially because as a native New Yorker I've been born and bred to hate it (:rofl:), and partially because the whole city is kind of the opposite of what you'd expect: the T doesn't run super well, it feels small even though it's sprawling, and the people are sometimes even ruder than they are in New York, if you can imagine that. Plus I was wandering around opening day for the Red Sox so that didn't help at all. =p But it was a nice change of scenery nonetheless, and I got to visit a friend from college who's now doing school there.

You might have noticed that "Ways to Breathe While Drowning" has disappeared from my gallery. Right now I'm working on kicking it into final shape before sending it out for publication, but if anyone wants to read the final final version when it's done, give me a poke.

And there's not much else interesting to report on my end. :slow: So how are all of you?
