Slate's copy editors

Slate's "Who We Are" page includes bios of their five copy editors, all of them women:

Susan Daniels is a Slate copy editor. She earned her bachelor's degree at the University of Iowa. Before joining Slate, she was an editor at a consumer finance Web site.

Sian Gibby is a Slate copy editor. She received her master's degree in architecture from the University of Cincinnati and worked for a number of online entertainment sites before coming to Slate.

Kim Runciman is a Slate copy editor. She's edited and managed various magazines and newspapers in the Seattle area, and her fiction and creative nonfiction have appeared in numerous publications. She is a devout believer in the serial comma.

Ellen Tarlin is a Slate copy editor. She has copyedited previously at National Geographic Adventure, Travel + Leisure, Everyday Food, Scholastic, and numerous other places. She has taught writing and literature at Emerson College and Newbury College. Her essays have appeared in the Boston Globe, the Boston Phoenix, Brooklyn Bridge, and Bark magazine.

Amanda Watson-Boles is a Slate copy editor. She enjoys reading the dictionary, and her grammatical pet peeves include verb-stranding commas and misuse of the subjunctive. Before joining Slate, she was an editor at the Committee to Protect Journalists and Foreign Policy magazine. She graduated from Vassar College and earned a master's in international economic affairs from George Washington University.
