Remembering Kat Muscat



We published a tribute to writer Kat Muscat (1990-2015) in Issue 27 of The Lifted Brow, and we also created this here webpage so that people could read Kat's words easily. Below you can find lots of links to Kat's writing, each and also the totality of which might go some way in giving you a fuller picture of the person and writer that we lost.

Thanks to all the publications for helping us to link to her work.
