The Savvy Red Pen

See what we did there..?

Savvy. Good word, that.



I've said for years that I'm a fan of words. Today, we're announcing a new Loop Member who is, in fact, more of a superfan. Help me give a warm welcome to Gail Kerzner of The Savvy Red Pen!

And because I know she's a superfan, I'm going to use her own words from her own website to tell you a little more about herself:

"I love words.

"Call me a word geek—lover of magic phrases that resonate with audiences because they reach the mind and heart.

"So I’ve put my formal training and 30 plus years of experience to work for you—the author—whether you’re writing a book, developing materials for profit or nonprofit organizations, or crafting that all-important essay for college admissions and scholarships."

I am super excited to have this superfan in The Loop so I can keep you posted about some of the cool things she's up to!

And there happens to be one cool thing she's up to that might be helpful for you and yours to know about now...

Next Tuesday, August 3rd, The Savvy Red Pen is hosting a FREE workshop for parents and students to provide tips on crafting a college admissions/scholarship essay! You'll find the link to the Eventbrite listing with more information in the list of happenings below.

Whether you're a writer or books or blogs, essays or emails, you can get valuable tips by giving her a Follow on Facebook and Instagram.

And, hey, just a heads-up... Might want to make sure to read your weekly Loop newsletter as quickly as you can after it hits your inbox or she might just beat you to a #proofimareader t-shirt*!

*Did you not know about the #proofimareader t-shirts? Perhaps you're fairly new to The Loop - I haven't made a mistake in a while! Of course, I probably just jinxed myself so keep your eyes on the emails. If you see something amiss, give a quick reply so I can correct the website. First to find a goof gets the goods!
