Kate Shenton

Portrait of female with brown hair
Kate is from a sleepy corner of Dumfriesshire in the South of Scotland. She lives with her husband, two toddlers, Douglas and Ruaridh, and Marble, the West Highland Terrier. Kate studied Scottish Literature and Scottish Ethnology at the University of Edinburgh where her loves of story and of Scotland combined. It was whilst living in Edinburgh that Kate began to explore the Highlands. She particularly enjoys, when time allows, walking up mountains with Marble. The landscape and weather help to provide inspiration for her poetry, which has previously been published in Southlight, Poetry Scotland, Sink Magazine and on the Black Nore Review. Kate writes when she has time between looking after her toddlers and working as a Primary School Teacher.
