About

Writing It Today is a writing community founded in 2011 by writer and therapist Kate Galloway Smith. 



Up until 2011 my life had panned out just as I had imagined it would: school, university, marriage... It was almost as though I had followed the official rule book of 'How to Grow Up'. Then in 2011, halfway through my masters degree in Occupational Therapy, I fell pregnant - tick in the next box I thought...    

Only it wasn't. 

It was the start of a year that would test me to the very edge of my limits. 

From an acute bout of Hyperemesis Gravidarum which landed me in hospital, ballooning me to the size of a beached whale but not before making me lose two stone first! 

Two house moves (what was I thinking?)

Then a divorce to top it off... 

Phew! 

So I started writing as a cathartic way to vent all of my frustrations. It was cheaper than a therapist and less violent than taking it out on my ex-husband! 

I now work as a therapist myself, as well as both a traditionally published author writing uplifting bookclub fiction and a self-published author of crime fiction, script writer, and one-time model in Loaded magazine!

Writing It Today is a writing community focussing on how to get pen to paper, and how to go from blank page to published author.
