Kate Alexander-Kirk | Executive Editor
Kate Alexander-Kirk drinks copious amounts of tea as she dreams up weird and wonderful stories that she one day hopes to realize. And she does it all donning her Top-Hat at a jaunty angle.

WHERE DID IT ALL BEGIN?
The Zest Literary Journal is the brain child of two friends and fellow writers, Kate Alexander-Kirk and Amy Sibley. The former a Scot and the latter an American, together they wanted to created a space that would allow them to showcase the creativity, energy and freshness of writers and artists all over the world, without boundaries. This project began at the tail end of 2011 and continues to evolve, reaching new places and connecting with a diverse range of creativity. During the first issue Kate took responsibility for Fiction and Amy for Creative Non-fiction and they were pleased to welcome Liz Bury as Poetry editor. Amy has since moved on to pursue her own writing and Kate now manages over all responsibility for each issue, with a particular focus on Fiction and Creative Non-fiction literary works, whilst Liz maintains her focus on Poetry.
