I'm Kimberly Rooney | 高小荣, a writer, editor, and – take your pick: singer, runner, crocheter, bard, other.
I'm currently a video game writer for Pitt's Laboratory for Child Brain Development. I was the second writer in residence at City Books, where I worked on a collection of essays on adoption and identity. My writing has appeared in The Offing, Jellyfish Review, The Pitt News, Forbes & Fifth, The Review Review, Pittsburgh Magazine, and Three Rivers Review.
In April 2019, I received a BPhil in English Fiction Writing and Communication rhetoric at the University of Pittsburgh, as well as a minor in Chinese. While at Pitt, I served as editor in chief of Collision Literary Magazine and copy chief of The Pitt News. After graduating, I worked as a barista, where I learned to pour a twelve-tier tulip, and as a content coordinator for Pittsburgh Magazine, where I retaught myself AP Style.
