About Me

Hi, I’m Carolina VonKampen (she/her). I’ve always had a love of reading and writing, and in high school and college, I realized that editing was a perfect combination of those interests. Since then, I’ve been editing anything I can get my hands on: books, blog posts, content marketing, lit mags, magazines, and more.

I graduated with a BA in English and history and completed the University of Chicago’s editing certificate program. I am a member of ACES: The Society for Editing, Editorial Freelancers Association, and St. Louis Publishers Association.

I’m the publisher and editor in chief of Capsule Stories, a print literary magazine published every season, where I edit all the poetry and prose that we publish.

My writing has appeared in HerStry, FIVE:2:ONE’s #thesideshow, Moonchild Magazine, and Déraciné Magazine. My short story was nominated by Dream Pop Journal for the 2018 Best of the Net.
