Kim Kobersmith

Since 2014, I have crafted articles, profiles, and features for newspapers, magazines, and e-publications. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Communications and my writing has been recognized with a Kentucky Press Association news award and an artist enrichment grant from the Kentucky Foundation for Women. I am a member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors. I write accessible articles in jargon-free English that tell a human story with dignity. I am easy to work with and always meet my deadlines. I believe that stories are everywhere, not just the coasts, and treasure the people and happenings in the small towns where I have lived, from Texas to Alaska to Connecticut to Kentucky. I am an avid reader and a gardener. I love exploring on foot near my home, where the Appalachian foothills meet the Kentucky bluegrass. I tell groan-worthy Dad jokes and usually have the loudest laugh in the room.
