FEATURE STORY

MEET KATIE, a writer and poet.

Katie enjoys writing short stories and poems. Katie said she was inspired to start writing when she was 11 years old while reading the Goosebumps series. Katie’s poems are about world issues, animal and human right issues, and about her own experiences. She faced some challenges while in high school and writing was cathartic for her. Katie says her short stories tend to be more dark and emotional. She likes to write about mature subject matter.

See a sample of Katie’s poems here.
