Kim Brittingham is an in-demand social content contractor, writer and part-time instructor of “How to Blog” at Gotham Writers’ Workshop in New York City. She is the author of a memoir, Read My Hips (2011, Random House) and Write That Memoir Right Now (2013, AudioGo). Her essays have been published on iVillage, Salon and Fresh Yarn. She received widespread national attention, including appearances on the Today Show and NPR, when she created a mock self-help book jacket with the title, Fat is Contagious: How Sitting Next to a Fat Person Can Make YOU Fat, wrapped it around a real book, and pretended to read it while riding the buses of New York City as an informal social experiment.
She divides her time between New York City and the Jersey Shore.
