Welcome to The Friendly Stickler. I’m Betty Ann Bardell.
To editing experts, stickler may have a negative connotation as a rigid or pedantic editor. I’m not that, but I’d like to be a stickler for accuracy.
I hope a general audience will think of this friendly stickler as an approachable editor who strives for correctness in service of the reader. Correctness can be flexible, as long as the flexibility starts from a place of knowing.
I welcome your feedback.
