Pen of Kym Writes

Hey there, I'm Kendra aka Kym Writes!

I'm a creative writer, story coach, coffee chick, cool nerd, big dreamer, recovering procrastinator, unashamed binge-watcher & book-obsessed wordsmith on a mission to tell stories that empower and inspire and help others make an impact with their words.


The power of storytelling is real…

KYM Writes is my place to inspire those who write, read, and create. Maybe you have a deep desire to tell your story but you don’t know where to begin or you’re struggling to pursue your creative dreams while dealing with the unexpected (because life happens). This is a place to reignite your passion and hope through writing, reading, and soul care. A place to help you tell your story — the one only you can tell.


My Mission

I'm passionate about penning words to let people know they can overcome adversity and find peace and hope in dark and broken places.

As an author, I write contemporary fiction with edge, heart, and soul. As a storytelling coach, I help others improve their content, make an impact with their words, and engage their audience through storytelling. I also provide editorial services for creative writing projects (short stories, scripts, speeches, novellas, novels, etc.)


Remember why you started

It’s definitely possible to survive the unthinkable plot twists in our stories. Your story-in-progress and voice can empower others. I designed this space to encourage you to keep going when you're weary, grieving, overwhelmed, or ready to call it quits. So, if you need a good fiction read, faith boost, writing resources, help telling your story, or someone to tell you “YOU got this” as you navigate this unpredictable journey called LIFE, KYM Writes has you covered.

The world needs your stories and mine. Let's make it happen!
