It can be a hard thing to “show your work” as an editor, especially when you are privileged enough to work with some of the best writers. But here are a few unsolicited testimonials from some of them about my work.
There is only one @megancarpentier and she was the PERFECT editor for me and I am sad to be leaving her.

When I was writing in public I always felt incredibly lucky to get to work with @megancarpentier who genuinely cares about the voices she uplifts and is always helped make my arguments stronger. https://t.co/qtM2pCRL0b
