About Me

Kate Needham (she/her) is a flash fiction writer who loves everything speculative and surreal. Originally from Kansas City, MO, she is currently working on her PhD at Yale where she researches, writes, teaches first-year composition and neglects her houseplants.

My stories often feature outer space, plants with consciousness, and queer yearning.

As an academic I study translators, classical reception, and ideas of style in early modern England. My teaching has included classes on time travel, camp & kitsch, gothic fiction, and Shakespeare. I am also a translator myself with experience in Latin poetry and prose.
