 Chris Wolfgang—Contributing Writer
Born and raised in the Midwest, Chris Wolfgang has been writing and editing for 20 years across a variety of topics and industries. She’s edited fiction for HarperCollins, written about goth weddings for Offbeat Bride, adapted translated Japanese text for manga, edited gaming material for Vampire: The Masquerade, and built publishing teams for several tech startups. You can also find a byline in a romance anthology, if you look hard enough. This is Chris’s second interim at Omaha Magazine—she was an assistant editor for its fleet of publications from 2012–2014. She makes her home in Midtown with her partner, three cats, and whatever stray person or pet needs a quiet place to be for a bit.
