A writer, editor and photographer, Kitty Sheehan has written copy, created social media sites, web features and blogs for food brands, restaurants, resorts, writers, funeral homes, shops and magazines. A former teacher, consignment store owner, newspaper writer, corporate trainer and graphic designer, Kitty’s resume makes her own head hurt. 

She is the founder and director of the annual Dartbrook Writers Retreat in Keene, NY, a five day master class in memoir, in New York’s Adirondack High Peaks. In 2013, the retreat was led by renowned teacher and memoirist Abigail Thomas. Kitty is also on the advisory board for the Woodstock Writers Festival in Woodstock, New York. 

Kitty is a native Iowan, currently happily residing in Minneapolis, via New York’s Hudson Valley, which will forever be home.
