Kristie Reilly is a writer and editor with 20 years of experience editing for books, magazines, academic journals, and other publications. She began her career in publishing just after high school, when she worked as a typesetter for Osborne McGraw-Hill, a technical book publisher in Berkeley. Before long she moved to the editorial side, working while in college in several editorial positions. She has held staff positions at the University of Chicago Press, the Harvard Medical School, and In These Times magazine, among others, and her freelance clients include a range of academic and trade publishers (for more information, see the gallery and client list). She is a member of the Editorial Freelancers Association and former co-chair of the EFA’s Boston chapter before a recent move to upstate New York. See her resume here.

Kristie’s editing and writing focus on nonprofit, academic, and political work, with occasional creative nonfiction and poetry projects to keep things interesting.
