Margie Wolfe has been publishing women-focused, social justice and human rights books for adults and young people since 1977, first at Women's Press, and now at Second Story which she co-founded with several women including Carolyn Wood in 1988.
Phuong started at Second Story Press in 2004 after completing a Bachelor of Commerce at Queen’s University and the publishing program at Centennial College. She handles all things numbers-related and ensures that staff do not go too long without snacks and treats.
Melissa started at Second Story as an intern in 2005 after completing the Centennial College publishing program and never left. She loves working with Second Story’s many talented authors and illustrators. She also loves travel, sushi, and cats.
Carolyn graduated from Journalism at Ryerson University and massaged words at two Toronto newspapers before becoming a travel writer and Editor of Air Canada’s enRoute magazine. As Editorial Director for a Montreal publishing and multimedia firm, she produced books for the likes of Time-Life, National Geographic, DK, and the Smithsonian. Managing Editor at Second Story for 10 years, Carolyn says she’s old and gnarly. We call her a seasoned pro.
Kathryn Cole has spent a distinguished career in publishing. Her experience as an art director, editor, author, instructor, and award-winning publisher give her a keen understanding of how to bring out the best in manuscripts of fiction and non-fiction for all ages. In other words, she comes by the glasses and grey hair honestly.
