Laura and I purchased Copyediting from Manifest in September 2015 with a goal of growing a brand we both loved to offer more to more editors.
The last three years have been incredible. We’ve received an enormous amount of support from our subscribers and the broader editing community. Together, we accomplished a lot, including:
- Creating the Copyediting Weekly, a free weekly newsletter with advice and resources for readers
- Transitioning Copyediting newsletter into premium online articles
- Expanding our training offerings to include In Depth Courses and Mentor Groups
- Publishing our first two books, Copyediting’s Grammar Tune-Up Workbook and Surviving and Thriving at Conferences: Copyediting’s Guide for Editors
Now Laura and I have decided it’s time to move on. In making this decision, we were determined to ensure Copyediting’s fantastic resources would remain available to the editing community.
We’re pleased to announce that ACES, a professional organization we both belong to, has purchased all of the material that makes up Copyediting. That means that all of Copyediting’s webinars, audioconferences, books, and blogs will soon be available through ACES.
Immediately, nothing changes for Copyediting’s subscribers. In the near future, ACES will begin incorporating Copyediting into the oldest editing organization in the United States. Laura and I are looking forward to this next home for all of Copyediting’s material.
Thank you again for all your support. We’ve loved working with and for our fellow editors. And we can’t wait to see what ACES does with Copyediting!
