Kate Garrett is a writer, mum, editor, horror fan, history buff, and amateur folklorist, among other things.
Her poetry and flash fiction have been widely published online and in print, and she is the author of several little books: Minor Things (2014 - currently out of print), Bewitched (Pankhearst Kindle Single, 2014), Bewitched and Other Stories (Pankhearst, 2015), The names of things unseen (published in Caboodle, Prolebooks, 2015), The Density of Salt (Indigo Dreams Publishing, 2016), and Deadly, Delicate (Picaroon Poetry, 2016).
Her latest pamphlet You've never seen a doomsday like it, was released by Indigo Dreams Publishing in June 2017, and her next pamphlet, Losing interest in the sound of petrichor, will be published by The Black Light Engine Room Press in early 2018.
She is currently writing the sequel to Deadly, Delicate, as well as a more general poetry pamphlet (with planetary / astrological threads running through it), and her first full collection of history and horror poems.
Kate has a BA (Hons) in Creative Writing (first class honours) from Sheffield Hallam University, and plans to do an MA in Medieval History / Medieval Studies once she stops having babies.
Kate's poetry has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize, and The Density of Salt was longlisted for best pamphlet in the Saboteur Awards 2016. She is the founding editor of Three Drops from a Cauldron + Three Drops Press, as well as the web journal for rogue poems, Picaroon Poetry and the horror/gothic webzine Lonesome October Lit. She is also the former senior editor for poetry and flash fiction (2014-2016) at the now-dissolved writers collective Pankhearst (2012-2016).
She is a married mother of 4.5 human children (and one cat), and lives in Sheffield, where she walks the winding rivers and dreams of living beside the Irish Sea.
