Katia Noyes has worked as a roofer, math tutor, arts journalist, content developer, go-go dancer, and hospital storyteller. She is now an editor for private clients needing help with novels and memoirs.
She writes autobiographical prose poetry these days and is working with screenwriter Kip Pearson to adapt her first novel for film. She is also having fun hosting a podcast, Generation 27, exploring the poetry of Federico García Lorca.
Her first novel, Crashing America (Alyson), was a finalist for three awards including the Lambda, was a Booksense Notable, and Alexander Street Press chose to include it in a landmark academic collection of key works addressing LGBT thought and culture.
An excerpt from her second novel, A Partial History of My Delusions, was published by Criminal Class Press, and you can find her essays in various collections, such as For Keeps: Women Tell The Truth About Their Bodies (Seal Press).
She is a practitioner of meditation, devoted to her friends and sweetheart, and is at her happiest dancing in the streets.
