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) and most recently The Density of Salt (Indigo Dreams Publishing, 2016) and Deadly, Delicate (Picaroon Poetry, 2016).
Her next pamphlet You've never seen a doomsday like it, will also be released by Indigo Dreams Publishing later in 2017, and she is currently working on her sixth pamphlet, as well as her first full collection. She has a BA (Hons) in Creative Writing (first class honours) from Sheffield Hallam University, and is also (excruciatingly slowly) pursuing postgraduate research on the short stories of Nathaniel Hawthorne and Shirley Jackson.
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. 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 four human children (and one cat), and lives in Sheffield, where she walks the winding rivers and dreams of living beside the Irish Sea.
