Join us Saturday, June 8, 2019 as we welcome writer and speaker, Kathryn McClatchy. She will present TEN: Healthy Habits for Your Writing Life.
McClatchy has had to learn the hard way how to become a healthy, productive writer. She started her career in marketing and advertising, then joined the world of academia teaching literature, composition, research skills, and rhetoric. In 2006, as she was finishing her master’s degree and preparing to start her PhD, Kathryn suffered the first of many strokes. One day she was a college professor, the next day she was learning to read, write, talk, walk, and pretty much everything else, all over again.
In the last decade, she has applied her education and experience to reinventing herself as a writer and public speaker. In addition to writing thrillers and creative nonfiction, McClatchy has created and/or manages social media campaigns for three non-profit writing organizations, created and facilitated a flash fiction contest that has since been named after her. Learn more about her at www.KathrynMcClatchy.com or https://www.facebook.com/KMMcClatchy/.
Additionally, McClatchy coaches writers and businesses on platform building, productivity, ADA Compliance, and developmental writing. She can be found on Twitter at: https://twitter.com/K_McClatchy/ and Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/kathrynmcclatchy/, as well as other social media sites.
McClatchy will be joined by her ever-present companion, Gizmo-the Service Dog. When he’s not acting as McClatchy’s safeguard and protector, he keeps himself busy helping her with his own Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/GizmoTheSD/ and Instagram account: https://www.instagram.com/gizmo_the_sd/.
