For immediate release
Copyediting, the world’s premier brand for editors, is back in editors’ hands
Pilcrow Group Inc., an editor-run company for editor training and publishing, purchased Copyediting, the premier brand for copyeditors, on September 22, 2015.
Pilcrow Group Inc., an editor training and publishing company, has purchased Copyediting, the world’s leading resource for copyeditors.
Formerly owned by Manifest LLC, Copyediting is a 25-year-old brand comprising a bimonthly newsletter, monthly training audio conferences, and a blog, as well as a job board and a forum.
Says Erin Brenner, one of Pilcrow Group’s founding partners, “We’re thrilled that Copyediting is back in the hands of working copyeditors. No one understands an editor’s needs for training and information like another editor, and Laura and I are eager to give editors more of what they need.”
“We’ve surveyed our peers and listened to what they want from a supporting organization. In the coming months, editors will be able to sign up for multisession webinars, purchase training books, and join private training groups,” says Pilcrow Group founding partner Laura Poole.
Copyediting was founded as a newsletter in 1990 by copyeditor Mary-Beth Protomastro and has remained the premier publication for copyeditors around the world. The brand now includes an extensive website, which hosts a daily blog, a job board, and a forum. Copyediting also hosts monthly training in the form of audio conferences and webinars.
Brenner and Poole plan to expand Copyediting’s resources considerably, including books and e-books, multisession webinars, live events, and more. Their stated mission is to provide development and support for editors across the career spectrum—from just starting out to senior and advanced editors in all fields.
