Kate is a playwright, largely working in novel-to-stage adaptation. She is now editing her first novel, a coming-of-age narrative set at the onset of the First World War, which traces a young woman's social and political awakening.
Kate holds an MA with Distinction in Creative Writing from Goldsmiths University of London, where she was selected by United Agents to win the Pat Kavanagh Award. Additionally, she has a First Class Honours Degree in English Literature, and trained as an actor at The Bristol Old Vic Theatre School.
She was a recipient of The Jerwood Charitable Foundation's Mentorship Award, which granted her a year's mentorship from award-winning writer, Rebecca Lenkiewicz. Kate's work has been professionally produced in the UK and in America, where she was an artist-in-residence with The British International Theatre Program. Her plays have been listed for The Bruntwood Prize and BBC Writer's Room. For Creation Theatre Company, she has adapted Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, The Brothers Grimm's Cinderella and Bram Stoker's Dracula.
As a feminist activist, Kate has contributed to a variety of campaigns which aim to create a better world for women and girls. In 2015, she founded The Heroine Collective, a publication which documents the lives of women who contribute to socio-political change.
In partnership with Scary Little Girls and The Heroine Collective, Kate has received a grant from The Heritage Lottery Fund to manage a project which collates the oral testimonies of women who lived on The Greenham Common Peace Camp. The testimonies will be hosted at The Women's Library at LSE, and in a specially designed website. The research will be presented in a nationwide exhibition in 2019.
