Well what do you want to know...
Of course Kate Garrett is a writer, but she is also a mum, editor, witch, horror fan, history buff, amateur folklorist, heritage volunteer, and folk drummer, among other things.
Her poetry and flash fiction have been widely published online and in print, and she is the author of several books.
Her first full-length poetry collection, The saint of milk and flames, was published by Rhythm & Bones Press in April 2019. And her seventh chapbook To Feed My Woodland Bones [A Changeling's Tale] was published in September 2019 by Animal Heart Press. Another chapbook, A View from the Phantasmagoria, is forthcoming from Rhythm & Bones in October 2020.
Kate has a BA (Hons) in Creative Writing (first class honours) from Sheffield Hallam University, and plans to do an MA in history or heritage (and with any luck, a PhD in folklore studies) once her babies are a little older.
Kate's poetry has been nominated once for a Pushcart Prize, three times for Best of the Net, and The Density of Salt was longlisted for best pamphlet in the Saboteur Awards 2016. Her pamphlet You've never seen a doomsday like it was Poetry Kit book of the month for January 2018, and a Poetry Book Society Winter 2017 selection. She is the founding editor of several journals +/or presses (which are going on hiatus from November 2019).
She is a married mother of five human children and one cat-child, and lives in Sheffield, where she walks the winding rivers and always inhabits a between place in her heart.
