Sometimes somebody just has to give us a chance.
For as long as I have known Quinn Colter (we met shortly after I started this blog, when she was still in high school), she has wanted to be a copy editor. Words—the right words, rightly spaced and punctuated—matter to her. She studies them and celebrates them. Their mismanagement irks her. She sees herself in New York City someday, but between now and then—how? what?
Readers of this blog know how important copy editors are to me. Quinn knows how important she has become in my life. Not long ago I made the decision to invite Quinn onto the Dr. Radway's Sarsaparilla Resolvent team, and so I am so happy today to announce that she will be my copy editor on this important project.
Dr. Radway is due out next March from New City Community Press/Temple University Press.
Welcome to 1871 Philadelphia, Quinn.
