Kristy G. Stewart graduated from Brigham Young University with a BA in English and a minor in editing; she went on to receive her MA in English from BYU while emphasizing folklore and media studies. Even before going to college she was passionate about editing and enjoyed helping writers achieve their goals. She has worked on staff at several journals and magazines that cover everything from science fiction and fantasy to multidisciplinary research—she’s held developmental editor, managing editor, and senior editor positions. She has also taught an introduction to print publishing course at BYU.
She enjoys learning new things from clients, hiking, swimming, and rugby. When not editing, she manages two small children, a flock of chickens, a garden full of weeds, and a rambunctious Canaan dog.
