Full Name: Katharine Elizabeth Beutner
Born: March 5, 1982


I write fiction and nonfiction and teach creative writing and literature. I am an assistant professor of English at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa. Previously, I taught at the College of Wooster in Ohio as a visiting assistant professor.

I have a M.A. in fiction writing and a Ph.D. in English (specializing in eighteenth-century British literature) from the University of Texas at Austin. For the 2010-2011 academic year, I was supported by an AAUW American Dissertation Fellowship and a PEO Scholar Award while I finished my dissertation and worked on my next novel. During graduate school, I worked for two years as a public services intern at the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center and taught creative writing, literature, and rhetoric/composition at UT.

My novel Alcestis, a retelling of the Greek myth, was published by Soho Press in February 2010. Alcestis won the Edmund White Debut Fiction Award from the Publishing Triangle in 2011 and was also a finalist for the Lesbian Debut Fiction Award from the Lambda Literary Association and the BSFS Compton Crook Award in the same year.

An excerpt from my next novel, Killingly, will appear in TriQuarterly's June issue.

My short-short "Things That Make One's Heart Beat Faster" is available in Lady Churchill's Rosebud Wristlet 19.

I grew up in Lancaster, PA, in a modern house in the woods. I went to Smith College and graduated as a major in classical studies, though "generalist" or "dilettante" would've been more appropriate. I studied abroad at Trinity College in Dublin for a year. I've also lived in Washington, D.C., and Ashland, Oregon, for short periods.
