About E.K. Reisinger

Elizabeth openingE.K. Reisinger began her writing career as a journalist: for twenty years she served as a magazine editor, freelance writer and administrator in academia.

Now, as an emerging writer in fiction, she recently won the Two Sisters Writing & Publishing short story contest; the story was also chosen for the company’s 2020 print anthology. Other recent fiction work appears in the urban Celtic fantasy anthology Neon Druid (Mt. Misery Press, December 2018) and the Scottish literary journal Nitrogen House.

Professionally, she’s held positions at Gannett Newspapers, Thomson Reuters, Greenspring Media Group and, most recently, at the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library (HMML) at Saint John’s University, a global leader in the cultural preservation of manuscripts. Throughout the years, Reisinger has also contributed freelance editorial work to some of the world’s most recognizable brands. See examples on the Portfolio page.

Among other accolades, Reisinger is a past recipient of a news reporting and writing fellowship at The Poynter Institute in St. Petersburg, Florida. She holds a degree in political science and women’s studies from Luther College and is a member of the Women’s Fiction Writers Association (WFWA), the Romance Writers of America (RWA) and The Author’s Guild.

When not writing, she can often be found teaching and volunteering in schools, trying new recipes in the kitchen, or exploring the lakes and forests of Minnesota.
