Kendra is a freelance editor, specializing in nonfiction, and holds an M.A. in English literature. Growing up in Southern Ohio gave her a love of rural stories and a desire to see better representation of Appalachia in contemporary literature. In 2016, Kendra co-founded Reading Women, a podcast that features books by or about women, and presently serves as its Executive Director. When she’s not spending time in the publishing world, she’s taking her Corgi, Dylan, to the dog park or indulging in her cooking obsession. She currently reads and writes from coffee shops in South Carolina.
