Editing, writing, and social media management

I have 20 years of experience copyediting and proofreading academic and general interest writing. For seven of those years, I also honed my writing skills as a columnist and online editor for Copyediting Newsletter and Copyediting.com, where I created informative and entertaining posts for eagle-eyed editors and writers. For the last three years, I have provided social media management for Conscious Style Guide, Copyediting, and more.

I value the people I work with and I'm committed to maintaining author voice while adhering to given style guides and keeping the reader in mind. I also keep one finger on the pulse of current editing and publishing practices. You can catch the beat of that pulse in my Twitter posts and across the Web @PurplePenning.

Contact me at PurplePenning@gmail.com or on LinkedIn or Twitter to find out how I can bring style and order to your writing.
