Welcome to the online portal for writer and creator Kate Rigg. That’s me. Pleased to meet you. This is where you can find my bio, see writing samples, get information on the entertainment brands I created and Executive produced, and explore some multimedia images and trailers to amuse you.
With a background in writing for theater, stand-up comedy, television and hip-hop / spoken-word, I have won awards for creative writing from The University of Toronto, The University of Melbourne, The Juilliard School, The Canada Council for the Arts, The New York Foundation for the Arts, The Urban Arts Initiative, The Australia Council, The Ontario Arts Council, The Toronto Arts Council, the PatsyLu Foundation, The National Endowment for the Arts, The Asian Women’s Giving Circle, and the Ludwig Vogelstein foundation. My plays have been produced in theaters around the world, and I have been published as a poet, playwright and journalist.
After a few years working on freelance naming, writing and brand identity projects projects for agencies in Toronto, New York and Los Angeles, I spent a couple of years at the Omnicom Branding Agency Siegel + Gale as a Senior Writer in their Brand Voice practice. I left to serve as Creative Executive Producer on an innovative kid’s show for YTV Canada / Disney XD, then resumed my work as a creative consultant, content strategist and writer for agencies and businesses.
