Mary E. Duncan has been on the SLUG Magazine copy editing team for more than eight years—longer than two presidential terms! Every copy editing meeting, she ensures that the magazine’s grammar is in line, that punctuation goes where it needs to, and that she treats the sentences she reads with tender, loving care. We look forward to her hardworking and friendly personality each week, and we crack up at her lighthearted humor when she points out silly or idiosyncratic copy. Mary patiently mentors copy editors on the SLUG copy editing team and applies her keen eye to help the magazine publish the best possible content. She’s also volunteered at SLUG marketing tables and has participated in many SLUG events. Mary makes us proud—here’s to eight more years!
