About the blog

Green Caret discusses a wide range of topics, most of which relate to writing and editing — or to words in general. If you can argue the merits of Chicago style versus AP style, you’ve found a kindred spirit. If you’re interested in making your writing tighter and more effective, welcome. I hope you find something helpful every so often.

About the blogger

Joel has well over a decade of professional experience in proofreading and copy editing. He’ll go to the mat for the serial comma, has an irrational aversion to the plural possessive, and shamelessly inserts spaces around em dashes. And yes, he realizes he’s very, very late to the blogosphere.
