Kate Pemberton started Haringey Literature Live with the support of Collage Arts in 2013 because she felt there was a lack of accessible local provision of high quality writing activities, clubs, courses and events. She has been delighted to meet many talented creative writers in Haringey since that time and is excited to be hosting the Start Your Writing Week group every Monday.
Kate has been working with writers since the 1990s. She is a Fiction Editor for Ambit magazine, a freelance literary editor helping writers hone their work, and a copy-editor and proofreader. She likes facilitating group discussions and has a Level 3 Certificate in Counselling. She works as an English Language Mentor in Haringey, currently with a refugee group, as part of the project Create Your Future. Over the years she has helped many adults and young people advance their creative writing.
