👋️ — That’s me. I’m a graduate student in the MFA program at NC State University.

I write literary fiction, drink coffee, and eat toaster waffles. I’m currently working on a gothic coming-of-age novel about evangelicalism in the South. For a list of my recent and upcoming publications, click the confetti emoji in the top left-hand corner.

Thanks for taking the time to check out my work! When you’re done clicking around here, may I suggest watching this video of babies who can’t stop hugging? You can find me on social media at the links below or via email at kaylarutledge101@gmail.com.
