In what genre do you write, primarily (poetry, memoir, etc.)?

I'm currently working on some shorts stories, contemplating a longer story, maybe a novel or memoir. In the past the majority of my writing has been academic ethnography.

Have you ever been in a Meetup group?

Not before this one.

Have you ever been part of a writing workshop or critique group?

Did two classes/workshops at Story Studio Chicago. In college I did a lot of workshopping in creative writing classes but that was a looooong time ago.

Are you working on a specific project right now? If so, what is it?

Not anything big yet, but I have a lot of bits and pieces that I want make something of. Scattered, but hoping that this group will help me figure out where I should put my energy.


I hope to develop my creative projects in this group. I am an anthropologist and an ethnographer, with a passion for story and the written word in both my fictional and non-fictional writing.

What Kate is saying about this Meetup Group

Personally, I'm having a lot of fun in this group!
