My name is Katie Putz. I am the special projects editor at The Diplomat, making The Magazine happen as well as writing for the site.
I studied history, with a focus on US diplomatic and conflict history, at Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania and international security at the University of Kentucky’s Patterson School of Diplomacy & International Commerce. I largely focus on Central Asia and Afghanistan, but also on US foreign policy and international security.
I’m a member of the Military Writers Guild, a group committed to the development of the profession of arms through the exchange of ideas in the written medium.
The bottom line is I like to tell stories.
- I tweet @LadyPutz (Mostly FP/NatSec, lots of Asia, Central Asia & Afghanistan, also bad jokes, music, culture stuff.)
- My photography can be found on Flickr and Instagram.
- My resume lives over on Linkedin and a visual version is here.
