Kathryn Buckley is a Brooklyn native who will likely never leave there except for vacation. She teaches writing at the college level and her work can be found in 34th Parallel, The Rumpus, XoJane, The Chaffey Review, Clash Media, Toad Journal and Eclectica. Some of her favorite things are people, the beach, anything pop culture related, creative writing and her cat Sam. Lately her friend calls her Taylor Swift because she works out heavy emotions through her writing. She can live with that.
