Kimberly Rose is a writer and former journalist whose work has been seen and heard online, in books, newspapers, radio and magazines, nationally and internationally. She was born on South Beach and grew up in Coconut Grove, a small, bayside village in Miami. She spent many summers in Switzerland, where her mom was born, speaking French, her first language, and developing a love for all things literary. (Her mom spoke five languages, her grandmother, seven.) At the same time, growing up in polygot Miami exposed her to a multitude of Latin American cultures and languages.
Three of her one-act plays have recently been performed in the Boston area. “Butter” a sketch comedy/one-act play was performed to a standing-room only crowd at the Burren in Somerville, Massachusetts in fall 2018. “Red Shoes” was produced as part of Barstool Stories dinner theatre in September 2017 and “Social Disaster” was performed as part of Play In a Day community theatre in April 2017. A former journalist, Kim has been publishing creative nonfiction and short stories for over 20 years in newspapers, magazines, books and radio. These include The Miami Herald, the Moth Radio Hour, online at Wraparound South, Smith Magazine, Medium and Yahoo!. She worked as a contributing writer for the South Florida Sun Sentinel’s XS, writing feature stories on alternative energy, art and a controversial restaurant review. She was also a regular contributor to The Superyachts annual book, Boat International magazine and PostMortem, the first weekly South Beach newspaper.
Her short story “Photo Finish” is included in the book The Moment (Harper Perennial ) and was featured on NPR’s Talk of the Nation and will soon be heard on the Moth Radio Hour (going live May 26th, 2020).
