An unbeatable combination

Reading the PEN daily posts constitutes at least a grammar and marketing course for editors/proofreaders. You have an unbeatable combination with aspects of making like-minded Christian friends and having prayer support. It is comforting to have dependable professionals available if I cannot meet my client's needs at a particular time. —Marilyn Anderson

The Christian PEN has given me all the tools I lacked

After taking six classes through the Christian PEN, I launched my freelance editing business in April, 2007. By October, I had enough editing clients to quit my day job and go full-time with editing, and I’ve never looked back. My work is always changing, always challenging, and always pleasurable. From mentoring beginning writers, to critiques, to giving clients “the works,” The Christian PEN has given me all the tools I lacked to help me start up and run a successful freelance editing business. I will never go back to punching a time clock again!—Jeanne Marie Leach

What incredible fellowship I’ve experienced through the PEN!

I love The Christian PEN because of the opportunity to commiserate with other editors about the writing and editing life. And hey, we're all in the same boat, so my question might be someone else's. It's fabulous to know that anytime I need encouragement or simply forgot what to do with a comma, all I need to do is ask. Within five minutes, I'll have several replies with the solution to my problem. You can't pay enough money for perks like that! What incredible fellowship I've experienced through the PEN! Praise God for this wonderful online community!—Adam Blumer

Good information on the Christian publishing world

The Christian PEN has helped me mostly in three ways: the prayer loop; working on the PEN Points newsletter; and the courses, especially the recent Business Building and its hints on scheduling and time management. —Katherine Swarts
