My initiation into the Foghorn was unceremonious. A guy in my English class turned around and asked, “Does anyone want to copy edit the Foghorn? I’m tired of it.” The class groaned, shaking their heads. I raised my hand high, for even as a sophomore my passion for clean-copy was pervasive. After meeting with the Editor-in-Chief, where my enthusiasm won her over/creeped her out, I got the job.
