As copy editor, Margaret Seiler makes sure the stories in Portland Monthly are clear, readable, and grammatically correct. When she’s not editing other people’s stories or working on SagaCity Media’s other publications, she occasionally writes about food and drink, raising kids in Portland, and her hobby of extreme transit. She’s also a weekly bar trivia host.
Always an indecisive student, Margaret has a degree in English and mathematics from Amherst College and a graduate certificate in geographic information systems from Portland State University. The native Kentuckian landed in Oregon after youth-hostelling her way around the continent (before cell phones!) and worked at Willamette Week and the Portland Tribune before joining Portland Monthly in 2010. She lives in North Portland’s Kenton neighborhood with her brewer husband and their two children.
