Who is Kate?

I am a scholar, poet, blogger, and writing & productivity consultant. I am currently pursuing a PhD in Composition and Rhetoric at the University of Massachusetts, where I also received a Masters degree (Composition and Rhetoric, 2015) and an MFA degree (Program for Poets and Writers, 2013). I post weekly on my blog, The Tending Year, which aims to make self development and productivity accessible and applicable. My publications include a book of poetry (Ghosty Boo, A-Minor Press, 2015), a peer reviewed academic article (Journal of Lesbian Studies, 2017), and many poems in print and online.
