Katelyn Mae Petrin

Editorial assistant Katelyn Mae Petrin lived all over Washington state before moving to St. Louis, where she studied Medical Humanities, Classics, and Writing at Washington University. While finishing school, she wrote for St. Louis Public Radio, KDHX, the Common Reader, and the Riverfront Times. She also met real life cyborgs for the Merle Kling Fellowship in Literary Journalism, covered southwestern Illinois for Alton’s Telegraph, and built a fresh website for STLPR’s St. Louis History in Black and White. At SLM, she copyedits and edits the online blogs for Health and At Home. In her free time, she bakes, kickboxes, games, and rides motorcycles. She currently resides in South City next to a McDonald’s, where she ponders turning “overheard at the drive thru” into a postmodernist multimedia project.
