Kate Schatz

This week’s rad and radical episode touches upon the ways we are and aren’t educated in writing. Our guest, Kate Schatz, teaches writing, and was lucky to have had a teacher who championed her to become a writer. Not all of us get such early encouragement, but the good thing about our writing lives is that it’s never too late to seek out encouragement, collaboration, and other ways to bolster your writing lives and give you inspiration—including, we hope, this podcast.


Kate Schatz is a writer, organizer, public speaker, educator, and left-handed vegetarian Bay Area-born-and-bred feminist activist mama. She’s the New York Times-bestselling author of Rad American Women A-Z and Rad Women Worldwide, as well as My Rad Life: A Journal and Rid of Me: A Story. She is the former Chair of the School of Literary Arts at Oakland School for the Arts, where she taught fiction, poetry, and journalism to 9th-12th graders for many years.
