About


Katherine Seligman is a journalist and author in San Francisco. As a reporter, she’s focused on social issues, from homelessness, mental health and end of life issues to the city’s boom and bust cycles. But she’s also written about everything else, from self-appointed graffiti curators, urban coyotes and embryonic sex selection to what her kids learned growing up in Haight Ashbury.

She has been a staff writer at the San Francisco Chronicle Magazine and a reporter for the San Francisco Examiner and USA Today. Her stories have appeared in Redbook, Life, Time, California Magazine, PBS Next Avenue, CALmatters, Al Jazeera America, and the anthology “Fresh Takes.”

A finalist for the PEN/Bellwether Prize for Socially Engaged Fiction, she is currently working on a novel. She is a member of the San Francisco Writers’ Grotto and loves working in clay. (Check out some of her ceramic work, made and sold at Sharon Arts Studio).
