Hello and welcome! I'm Carla Lomax, and I’ve been exploring the art of communication since I first began writing poetry at the age of seven. My fascination with words and the sound of language led me to study other languages (French, Spanish, and Arabic), but I received a BA degree in English that included courses in linguistics and copyediting. I’m interested in learning about lots of things though, such as photography, other cultures, food, health and wellness, the arts, climate change, sustainability, law, recycling, printmaking, yoga, and whatever else grabs my interest.  

Because of my curious, questioning nature and eye for detail, I found grammar and punctuation a good fit for my skills and background. I can spot a typo a mile away—just kidding.  However, I do bring my eye for detail and my ear for language to my work as a copy editor and proofreader, although we all know good communication isn’t just about grammar and punctuation. It’s also about:


  • Demonstrating professionalism

  • Using clear speech (no language clutter)

  • Avoiding misunderstandings

  • Eliminating offensive or biased language

  • Accuracy
