Meet Kathryn

Since 2001, Kathryn Kay has been offering writing workshops for women, private coaching, and editing services. Kathryn believes there is a writer within each of us, and has yet to have a student who wasn’t surprised by the writing they produced in her workshops.

Kathryn fell in love with Italy many years ago when she lived in Florence for 5 years while studying restoration. It’s where her daughter was born, where she set her novel, The Gilder, and where she returns every chance she gets.

Kathryn has an MFA in writing and believes that returning to school as an adult is one of the best things she’s ever done.

Kathryn lives in Pasadena, CA.

Private Coaching

Are you trying to start a project or finish one? Or perhaps you’re stuck somewhere in the middle. Kathryn can help you organize your thoughts, create a structure for your ideas, and encourage you through the rough spots.

Kathryn is a deft, gentle writing coach. I have taken three courses with her, each superbly productive. I now read and listen differently with a much broader repertoire of writing techniques. Everyone feels entirely safe to write. Lucky you to have her as a teacher!
