Start here

Hi, I’m Kortney!

I live with my family on a peninsula in the Northwest.  Here at One Deep Drawer, I write about homeschooling through the church year.  Our days are filled with stories and poems, nature walks, drawing, and pots of tea.

I worked in Guadalajara one summer and studied in London one fall.  I served as an education volunteer in the Peace Corps deep in the Suriname rainforest.  I worked on a team that built a cob house and had my babies at home in the water.  

These days, I stick closer to home, and try not to go to the library more than twice a week!

I am the community director at Read-Aloud Revival where I get to work with Sarah Mackenzie and Kara Anderson, two of the smartest, most creative women around! We create resources to help families connect through books.

You can read a few of my poems that have been published and listen to a collection of podcasts where I’ve been a guest on the Poems + Podcast page.

I’m so glad you found your way to my neck of the woods. Here are a few places to begin.
