Hello! I'm Kelsey.

I'm a highly creative writer and editor with more than seven years of publishing industry experience, including nonprofit work and a year and a half in editorial operations at The Onion. I'm based in the great city of Chicago.

I write and work on narrative design for Outer Wilds, which as an alpha build won the 2015 Independent Games Festival Seumas McNally Grand Prize and Best in Design Award. It also received an honorable mention in Best in Narrative.

While editing, I tend to lean toward prescriptivism, but as a writer, I'm more of a descriptivist, which by my calculations lands me somewhere in the middle of the spectrum overall. My style guides, usage guides, and dictionaries are well-loved.

I also have two cats, Nova and Spaceman, who I never shut up about.
