Kimberly Barton

Bio for 2020

Kim is a writer who was born in southeast Kentucky, but raised split between Kentucky and Michigan. She writes both freeform and spoken word poetry. She has also started to dabble in fantasy writing. Her inspiration for her writing comes from fellow writers, past trauma, and everyday life. When she isn't writing she can be found hiking in the Kentucky wilderness, cooking something sweet, or most likely curled up reading with her dog Rusty.

Reason for signing up:

I thought it could be a good outlet for my writing and I've been wanting to become more involved in the Kentucky writing community.
