September is “Be Kind to Writers and Editors Month.” We know, it sounds bizarre, but Texas-based Lone Star Publishing actually established the event in 1984. For some, displaying kindness to a writer or editor seems incomprehensible. Many think journalists twist facts to promote their hidden agendas, need to take a remedial writing class, or are the lowest scum on earth.
At Akers Media Group, we value honesty and integrity. We diligently fact check and thoroughly proofread each sentence, oftentimes pulling out the AP Stylebook or dictionary when something is in doubt. And our only “agenda” is to produce the most informative, eye-pleasing magazines we possibly can.
And yet, we’ll be the first to admit we make errors. If you notice a mistake in any of our publications, we want you to bring it to our attention. Just try to be kind when doing so.
At least for this month.
