I’ve been meaning to pop in here and share some news but… life. There just hasn’t been time! But now I’m here and I’d like to share with you my first magazine copyediting credit!
I signed on with Endurance Sports and Fitness magazine to copyedit the July/August 2018 issue, which was published early last week; the plan is to continue as copyeditor as long as the owner/publisher and I are mutually happy with the arrangement. Here’s the cover of the issue:
This was an awesome opportunity for me, was a lot of fun, and taught me a lot! I am not an endurance athlete (and certainly have never been a runner), but you don’t need to be to enjoy the articles and there’s a lot in there applicable to other sports (I WILL someday be a climber again. after birthing and nursing baby #4?).
I also got some great experience with AP Style, which I hadn’t edited previously. I’m a nerd, though, and enjoy learning and following style guides…SO, win-win! Experience – check! Fun – check! Plus – extra cool: my name is in there on the second of the two Table of Contents pages. It says, “Copyeditor: Kristin Houlihan.” AWESOME.
In any case, I’m beginning to ramble so I’ll leave it here. Here are some links for you:
