My name is Mary Kole and I’ve worked as a publishing company editorial assistant, literary agent, and now, freelance editor working directly with writers on their craft. My blog, Kidlit, has won the Writer’s Digest
101 Best Websites for Writers award many years running. This spun off into my book, Writing Irresistible Kidlit
, out from Penguin Random House. From there, I broadened my expertise to all writers in all categories. With Mary Kole Editorial, I’ve helped more than three thousand writers on their writing journeys since 2013. I founded Good Story Company in 2019 to provide resources for writers of all categories and genres. My team and I relentlessly pursue opportunities to help writers better their lives, their art, and their overall experience in the industry.
After a stint in Brooklyn, I now live in Minneapolis, with my husband, Todd, and two sons, Theo and Finn. We have two very annoying but lovable pugs, Gertie and Olive, and one very independent cat named Luna.
