My name is Kate Ericson, and I am a writer and pop culture obsessive living in Washington, D.C. Originally from small-town New England, I graduated from the University of Connecticut in 2013 with a degree in literature and American law and politics. After college, I moved to “the big city” and pursued a Master’s in gender studies from George Washington University. In December 2014, I graduated and transitioned to working as a full-time writer.
My reading preferences are varied; I’m drawn to literary fiction, essay collections, short stories, poetry, translated works, philosophy, literary criticism, and memoirs. My favorite writers include: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Rebecca Solnit, Teju Cole, Susan Sontag, Sylvia Plath, and Julianna Baggott – to name a few.
I am currently writing my first novel.
