Kathryn Mayer

Newtown, Connecticut
Kate Mayer is a potty-mouth, somewhat irreverent storyteller, humorist, and activist writing about life as she lives it in Newtown CT. She writes with wit, humor and a heavy dose of levity, what others think but are afraid to say, capturing mundane moments of everyday life that reflect the human experience. Everyone has a story to tell, and she encourages writers to pay attention to tiny itty-bitty details that reflect the good, the bad, the funny, the real – all in six words. Less is more, and what you leave out amplifies what you leave in. You'll see.

Kate's essays have been published in Good Housekeeping, Cosmopolitan, BlogHer, Scary Mommy, BluntMoms, The Mid, Erma Bombeck Writers Workshop, Midlife Boulevard, and The Good Men Project. She is a very proud Listen To Your Mother NYC 2012 alum. She is a vocal, dedicated activist for gun violence prevention, and a forever ambassador for the Newtown CT community. She blogs at http://www.kathrynmayer.com and is occasionally funny on Instagram & Twitter as @klmcopy.
