My name is Kt Burlett and I’m finishing my sophomore year at Berea College. My major is Computer Science, but I love to read and write! Already, I’ve won multiple writing awards and had several of my short stories published. My stories vary in genre from historical fiction to science fiction and you can find my work at: http://figment.com/users/95096-Katharine-Elizabeth-

Prior to coming to Berea, I lived in Virginia for eight years and attended a small community college there. I worked as a Route Manager for a recycling business five of those eight years, with various other jobs on the side. For example, I was a production assistant on the Remote Area Medical documentary that is now making its debut at various film festivals.

If you’re looking to contact me, my email is burlettk@berea.edu School keeps me pretty busy, but I’d love to hear from you! Thanks for your time and have a great day!
