San Diego Professional Editors Network (SD/PEN)
San Diego Professional Editors Network (SD/PEN) is an association of talented professionals who edit, write, proofread, index, and provide publishing-related services. Most of our members are freelance editors in the San Diego area who service clients locally, nationwide, and abroad. We also offer a variety of educational programs and networking opportunities for both seasoned editors and anyone new to the field.
SD/PEN strives to be an ally with all Black communities and to use ally as a verb. SD/PEN does not tolerate racism in any form, whether systemic, intentional, or reportedly inadvertent.
People who work with words have an obligation to all marginalized communities to be aware of terminology and usage that can uplift or destroy. SD/PEN encourages all editors and all those in editing-adjacent roles to use language consciously and to remain vigilant to both misuse and new usages. To that end, we recommend each person evaluate the style guides and databases referenced in Writing With Color and Conscious Style Guides for best practices within their fields.
