Katelynn Watkins

Katelynn is a writer, digital media specialist for Sage Island, and grad student with Emerson College. She moved to Wilmington January 2017 to seek new career and educational prospects: in addition to more sunshine and salt air, of course. Relocating from Asheville, NC (where she completed her BA in Mass Communications at UNC-Asheville), Katelynn had the opportunity to work with nonprofits like LEAF Community Arts and to write for esteemed regional publication, WNC magazine. Since arriving in Wilmington, she’s been published by North Brunswick Magazine, Wrightsville Beach Magazine, and Cape Fear Living. In her spare time, Katelynn enjoys diving into a good book or working on one of her own passion projects. Following these interests, she began working toward her MFA in Popular Fiction Writing and Publishing September 2017 through Emerson College’s online educational program. She enjoys traveling whenever possible, and would often be found at concerts, movies, or theatrical productions if her schedule would more often permit. A fan of animals, Katelynn enjoys the company of two cats: Millie and Sunny. All three are willing taste-testers for her husband, Bobby’s culinary experiments, both professional and recreational.
