2024 Bombeck Workshop Faculty Katrina Kittle

Katrina Kittle

Katrina Kittle is the author of Traveling Light; Two Truths and a Lie; The Kindness of Strangers (winner of the 2006 Great Lakes Book Award for Fiction); The Blessings of the Animals; and Reasons to Be Happy. Her newly released novel Morning in This Broken World was an Amazon First Reads pick.

Kittle teaches creative writing at the University of Dayton and through Word’s Worth Writing Connections, focusing on craft, motivation and jump-starting stalled writers. A public speaker, she also leads the workshops “Leap and the Net Will Appear” and “Happy Class.”

Kittle lives south of Dayton with her fella, her spooky little weirdo cat Annie, her sweet beagle Serena and her out-of-control garden. She has a thing for goats, gardening and going barefoot — and is addicted to coffee, pedicures and Indian food.
