Care to Listen? Bread Loaf Waiter’s Reading 2019, Night #2
Kailyn writes fiction and nonfiction. She splits her time between Oakland and Fort Bragg, traveling often throughout Oregon, Southwest Alaska, and the Gulf South. Her work has appeared or is forthcoming in Ploughshares, Literary Hub, Brevity, The Believer, The Cincinnati Review, The Master’s Review, Alta Magazine, and Pleiades, among others. She holds a BA from Reed College and an MFA from the University of New Orleans, where she was the editor of Bayou Magazine.
With support from the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference, the Ucross Foundation, Montana’s Open AIR, and the Mendocino Coast Writers’ Conference, Kailyn writes about California, rural Alaska, fire, addiction, and love. From April through October 2022, Kailyn will attend the Margery Davis Boyden Wilderness Writing Residency, living in a homesteader’s cabin on the Rogue River without cell service, internet, or electricity.
Kailyn is currently at work on new fiction. When not writing, she likes a good camping trip.
