Kate Crane

After spending years in Washington, D.C.’s 90s punk music scene as a zine writer and vegan baker, Kate Crane, a native of Baltimore, moved to Brooklyn in 1997. She freelanced for The Wall Street Journal's marketing department as a copywriter and proofreader. In 2002 Kate joined the staff of New York Press as a copy editor. At New York Press, Kate wrote a column called “Louder Than Words” about local community groups and activists; she covered do-gooders from East Village institution St. Mark’s Church to transgender legal pioneer Dean Spade and food bank City Harvest. Kate also covered food, music, and books. In 2005 she was promoted to Senior Editor.

Later that year Kate took a copyediting position at SmartMoney: The Wall Street Journal Magazine, where she edited veteran WSJ writers such as Joe Queenan, James B. Stewart and husband-and-wife wine experts John Brecher and Dottie Gaiter. In 2006 she was promoted first to Associate Editor, and shortly thereafter to Deputy Managing Editor. When she left in May 2008 to work on a book, Kate’s duties encompassed those of managing editor and copy and research chief.

Earlier this year she served as a final editor for a new book by Vladimir Kvint, the world-renowned Russian economist who predicted the fall of the Soviet Union in a 1990 Forbes piece. Kate has written and edited for diverse publications such as Radar, Seed, OK! and Men’s Journal, as well as corporations including Barnes & Noble and McKinsey & Co. She continues to cover the New York music scene for Brooklyn Rail. Kate currently lives in Jersey City, N.J., and is writing a memoir about her father’s 1987 murder.
