As I wrote on Facebook in the wee hours of Sunday morning:
Not only am I taking down my online shingle, so is the entire Penworthy site. No more editing services offered until who-knows-when.
Meantime, I’m working with writers with whom I can meet face-to-face, and to those with whom I already have a trusting, solid relationship.
It’s sad that the world makes us have to retreat in order to survive.
Here’s the Penworthy Press blog post to which my comments refer:
We apologize for any inconvenience, but we are no longer accepting new clients for our editing services.
There are many reasons for this, including new directions in the main editor’s life and schedule. The decision also comes as a result of a recent phishing scam perpetrated on one of our colleagues, as well as online-stalking behavior from a potential client in which an editor’s privacy was breached.
Meantime, the Penworthy Press collective continues to write, produce art and jewelry, and take photographs.
Thank you for your patience and for your continued reading. We look forward to sharing good news with you soon!
