I’m Kathryn – Author, educator, speaker, coach & gentle, joyful Stoic!

Kathryn Koromilas is a writer and educator. She is the author of Palimpsest, holds a Master of Philosophy degree in Creative Writing, leads The Stoic Salon, a “writing for personal resilience writing-for-wellbeing project,” and hosts The Stoic Salon Podcast.

As a writer, Kathryn has composed everything from novels and poetry to travel guides and opinions. As an educator, she’s taught writing at universities in Australia and the United States and taught English as an additional language in China, Greece, Spain, and Australia.

More recently, she’s lead workshops on Stoic journaling, memory writing, self-obituary writing, and personal narrative re-writing as a way towards self-healing and self-transformation.

She employs a variety of teaching methodologies and information technology tools, in both physical and virtual classrooms, to fulfil the needs and learning styles of a broad spectrum of learners of all ages.

She creates simple yet extraordinary education experiences, driven by her curiosity for the written word and the transformative power of stories.

“In the end, we will all become stories.”

Live is short. Write a story.
