About Kait


Kait MacKinnon is a writer, a Hufflepuff, a twin, and a wanderer.

She grew up in Wisconsin along with her twin brother, eventually attending the University of Wisconsin for journalism and communication studies, where she graduated in 2016. She is currently a graduate student at Park University in Kansas City.

While writing is certainly not her “day job,” she hopes to change that soon. In addition to working on her debut book, a not-yet-titled memoir, Kait also writes for Unwritten, a site targeted at millennial women. She has been writing for them since February 2016 and worked as an editor from September 2016 to July 2017. She has been featured on the Huffington Post and Elite Daily several times, and is a contributing write for PuckerMob.

When she’s not writing or busy living life, Kait enjoys traveling. She studied abroad in Edinburgh, Scotland in the fall of 2014, where she was bit by the travel bug and has been traveling ever since. Up next on her travel bucket list: Seattle, Vancouver, Boston, New Orleans, and Cancun. The list is essentially endless.

Kait currently resides in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area with her stuffed elephant, Leonard and her cat named Steven.
