Hi! I’m Kaitlyn the PSU WITS intern. I’m a second year student in the Fiction MFA program. My thesis is my main focus of study right now which means I am (supposed to be) writing a lot. I’ve gotten to take some excellent workshops and seminars about the craft of writing. My fiction has appeared in VoiceCather 5 & 6, and Void Magazine. As an Oregon native, my writing is frequently inspired by the small town the Willamette Valley that I grew up in. I’ve been a long time admirer of the WITS program and am so excited to be a part of it this term. I’ll be helping to put together the end-of-year anthology and you might see me in the classroom as an observer or assisting one of the insightful WITS writers.
Beyond writing I am also a dancer, dance teacher, and choreographer. I love seeing how the two art forms intersect, how you can tell a story through movement. I’m hoping to grow as a writer, reader, and teacher through my experience with WITS. See you around!
