Kindly bringing style and order to writing

I’m Dawn McIlvain Stahl, the person behind the purple pen.

I have more than 15 years of experience copyediting and proofreading academic and general interest writing. For four of those years, I also honed my writing skills as the online editor for Copyediting.com, creating informative and entertaining posts for eagle-eyed editors and writers.

Today, I edit, proof, and write for a lot of “new media” — including a variety of social media. 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 @PurplePenning.

Contact me at PurplePenning at Gmail or through LinkedIn, AboutMe, or Twitter to find out how I can bring style and order to your writing.
