I’m Kate Gorman, a writer and artist working in immersive storytelling. Using my background in theater and film, I create locative fiction audio experiences to engage people’s imaginations and connect them with their local surroundings. I’m interested in reframing public spaces through new narrative layers and encouraging exploration of the boundary between reality and fiction.
I’m the writer and producer of the locative fiction pieces GREENWAY QUARTET and WALL OF GLASS, and author of the novel ON THE ICE and the screenplay collection and creative guide INT-EXT. I’ve spoken about locative fiction at StoryCode DC and NerdCon: Stories, and I received a fellowship from the Joint Quantum Institute. I also work in watercolor, creating tessellated fields inspired by color block quilting, brickwork, and floor tiling from traditional American craftsmanship.
