Hi, my name is Kaitlyn McNab.
I am a New York-based freelance writer, beauty fiend, and pop-culture junkie. I am 22 years blooming and a graduate of New York University’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study.
At Gallatin I created my own major, a concentration titled How to Tell Stories While Black. I studied creative writing, film and TV, and media (broadcasting, publishing, and the Internet) as forms of narratives and minored in Africana Studies to analyze all of those mediums through a lens of Blackness. I questioned how Blackness changes, affects, and complicates these narrative forms.
I have always considered myself a reader first and a writer second. As a reader, you can find me on Bookstagram @kaitlyngetslit, where I review books and nerd out about all things bookish in the best corner of the Internet. As a writer, you can find my byline attached to roundups, essays, and features — I have experience covering books, beauty and fashion, music, and pop culture. You can see my clips in the ‘Work’ tab. And in the hopes of actualizing a dream I’ve had since the second grade, I am currently working on my debut novel, a YA fantasy.
When I’m not writing, I’m most likely avoiding writing by eating Chinese food, binge-watching Gilmore Girls for the 10th time, or playing the Sims. You can best reach me via email by clicking on the email icon at the top right or by tweeting me a funny GIF @kaitmcnab.
