Kathleen Foxx is the owner and editor of Foxx Editorial, offering a variety of editing services for fiction projects as well as critiques for query packages. She recently joined the team at The Rights Factory in Toronto as an Editorial Assistant and Literary Agent-in-training (more on that below). Kat is also the contract proofreader at Rising Action Publishing Collective, an amazing Canadian indie publisher based out of Toronto. She’s heavily involved in the writing community and posts daily writing questions under #kfoxxdaily. She’s also the host of the #badasswriters podcast, the audio editor for The Shit No One Tells You About Writing podcast, and a founder and organizer/host of #MoodPitch, a biannual Twitter pitch + moodboard event. Additionally, she’s the International Rep on the Board of Directors for Crime Writers of Canada and the Primary Chair for the Hamilton-Halton branch of Editors Canada.

She writes novels in genres such as domestic/psychological thriller, gothic thriller, action/adventure, and romcom and has several flash fiction pieces published in various online literary magazines/sites. She also has a second-place flash piece in Glittery Literary’s first anthology and an honourary mention in their second anthology.
Kat recently accepted an Editorial Assistant role at The Rights Factory, a fabulous literary agency based in Toronto, Ontario. She’s blazing her path to becoming an editorial-minded literary agent, learning from the creative and insightful agents there. Soon, she’ll be open to queries! It’s important to note that she will never ask a literary client to pay for editing services (this is a huge red flag in agents!) and, to avoid a conflict of interest, she is unable to offer representation on manuscripts she has previously been hired as an editor to work on. That said, if you’ve worked with her on a manuscript but have a new manuscript to query that she has not been paid to assess or edit, you are welcome to query her with it (when she’s open to queries!). Stay tuned for her MSWL and agenting news, which will be housed on a different website!
When not writing or editing, Kathleen enjoys reading, cooking, photography, digital marketing, and the beautiful Ontario outdoors (especially in summer). She’s a proud mom of five kids. Travelling and languages are particularly enjoyed (currently, she’s studying European Portuguese). Kat loves the hot months but also adores autumn, is pro-pumpkin spice, and loves wine, cheese, and cuddly fur babies. No good day begins without a healthy dose of coffee!
