Biography:

Kathryn is a second-year MA/PhD student in the English Department studying Rhetoric and Composition. She credits her love of and interest in writing to her grandmother, who was an editor. But, her scholarly interest in writing solidifed after working at the University of Vermont’s writing center for three years as an undergraduate and interning at a non-profit called The Young Writer’s Project in Burlington, VT. Kathryn’s current research interests lie in writing center studies, community literacy/writing, multimodal composition, translingual writing and creative writing. She’s had several creative works published in the past several years, but is looking forward to developing her scholarship and getting involved in campus events at UConn related to writing.
