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

I write literary fiction, drink coffee, and craft. I’m currently working on a gothic coming-of-age novel about evangelical culture 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 finished clicking around, may I suggest watching this happy video of babies who can’t stop hugging? And now that we’re pals, don’t forget to stay in touch! Connect with me at any of the social links below, or shoot me an email at kaylarutledge101@gmail.com.
