Welcome to The Christian PEN: Proofreaders and Editors Network!

Whether you are a seasoned editor or thinking about becoming one, The Christian PEN will provide you with education, networking, and community. Our diverse group of freelance proofreaders and editors has a variety of skills, specialties, and levels of experience. Join us at one of three levels: Bronze, Silver, or Gold.

Learn through online courses at The PEN Institute, through virtual workshops at PENCON (our annual editors’ conference), and by getting to know other editors personally. Our network is active in our private email group where we share tips, ask questions, and offer years of experience at a moment’s notice.

Become a part of a community of like-minded professionals who share our knowledge and experience with one another. We work together to glorify God with the talents and passions he has given, knowing that ultimately, God is the one who provides each client, project, and connection.
