Katie Bayerl

Author, A PSALM FOR LOST GIRLS
Jamaica Plain, MA
Katie fell in love with books before she can remember and with teaching when she was just a teen. The writing books for teens part came a bit later. She jumped right in and hasn’t looked back. She holds an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts and has worked as editor of a teen-generated magazine and taught creative writing in schools and a variety of community settings. She currently leads the VCFA Young Writers Network and teaches workshops for teens at GrubStreet. Her young adult fiction has won early honors, including the PEN New England Children’s Book Discovery Award. Her debut young adult mystery, A Psalm for Lost Girls, was released by Putnam/Penguin Books for Young Readers in March 2017.
