The Porcupine Editor


Welcome! I'm Jennifer Boardman, the copyeditor behind The Porcupine Edit. I love the English language: its unique beauty, vast vocabulary, and twisting history. I also inherently live the copyeditor's life: subconsciously proofing while reading novels, editing people's grammar in my head, and consulting my Chicago Manual of Style for fun. Whatever your project, I would be honored to work with you to sharpen your writing.

I have worked as a publications editor for over ten years and taught English in a Japanese high school for two years. I hold a Poynter ACES Certificate in Editing, an MA in Theological Studies, a BA in English and Music, and I am a member of The American Copy Editors Society.
