Hi there. I’m Kelly, and I’m a writer and editor.
I live and write in the greater New York City area, and am the Co-Publisher and Poetry Editor of Tahoma Literary Review. I recently returned to the US from London, England, where I served as Senior Editor for Eyewear Publishing until 2017. Prior to my time in England, I spent ten years in Seattle, where I taught English, worked with writers across the Pacific Northwest, earned my MFA in poetry, and served as the Managing Editor for The Los Angeles Review.
I write the column “The Waiting Room” for Change Seven Magazine, and I also regularly contribute to a variety of magazines, reviews, and journals, ranging from Ravishly to Women’s Review of Books.
I offer independent publicity and marketing services to small press writers via Small Press Love.
