Dehlia McCobb

Collaborative Editor

Dehlia has worked in the book industry in a variety of roles. She received a BA in English from the University of Oregon and an MA in book publishing from Portland State University. While at PSU, she was a member of the editing team for the student-run publishing house, Ooligan Press, and her career as a freelance editor has included editing work for Thomas Riggs & Company and proofreading work for Penguin Random House. She was also a volunteer coordinator for Portland’s local Wordstock literary festival for four seasons. A longtime employee of Powell’s Books, she can often be found in the flagship store’s Rare Book Room, where she specializes in antiquarian and collectible books. When she’s not reading, writing, bookselling, or editing (and when it’s not raining), she enjoys going for bike rides in the countryside around Portland.
