Service Description

Kara has read her creative writing for national broadcast on NPR (National Public Radio). Her essays, poetry, nonfiction articles and photography have appeared in Rock and Gem magazine, Mississippi Magazine, Whole Life Times Magazine online, Gift Shop, Parents & Kids, the Ellipsis literary journal, the Magnolia Quarterly literary journal and in the regional anthology, Magnolia Blossoms and Afternoon Tales: Stories and Poems from the American South. A featured essay piece is slated to appear in an upcoming issue of the women’s luxury lifestyle magazine, VIVMag.

Kara is a graduate of the University of New Orleans with a B.A. in English/Professional Writing. While at UNO, she served as Poetry Reader for Ellipsis.

Editorial proofing of work for other writers, much of which has been successfully...
