Contact- Kevin Devine: 734-904-6560
As copy editor for the Echo, I have helped the copy team edit the written material, usually as the final step before it is set to print, to correct errors in grammar, spelling, usage and style.
Promoted to senior staff writer, I have edited my section's stories, taken photos and have written four or more articles an issue. I obtained the senior staff writer position because I produced more stories for the issues and scooped some investigative pieces.
