About Radical Copyeditor

Hi! My name is Alex. In 2016, I launched the Radical Copyeditor project to help people align their language with their values in anti-oppressive, liberatory ways.

For more than four years I've put out content on my blog, radicalcopyeditor.com, that supports readers in doing just that: everything from radical vocabulary to know in the Trump era to anti-racist and anti-ableist language practices to my style guide for how to write about trans people.

Now my readers and wider community can support me in putting more content out in the world and also get an inside scoop on edits I make, questions I answer, and fabulous content I come across from other language lovers and activists. As a financially vulnerable freelancer, I haven't been able to put as much time into creating content as I would otherwise like to. Your support will change that!



I've been beyond grateful for the donations that folks have made when they've found my work useful. On more than one occasion I have cried tears of relief and joy when I was struggling to decide which bill to prioritize and received a generous donation out of the blue through my website. It means everything to me to be part of a larger community of people who believe in supporting each other and creating the world we want to live in.

Everyone who joins my Patreon community through a monthly donation of $3 or more will get access to regular member-only posts, and I'll be able to create even more of the free in-depth content you've come to know and love on my website. I'll also send you a recording of a November 2020 webinar I led, titled "Language Is Power: Using (and Teaching) Liberatory Language Practices."

Thank you for your support!
Goals
$476.34 of $500 per month
Reaching $500/month would allow me to spend one day a week on my writing and other creative radical copyediting projects. It would also allow me to offer one free training or speaking gig on the power of language per month to a university class or community organization that doesn't have the money to pay me.
