Image Description: Want More Radical Copyeditor in Your Life?

Full description of the featured image for the post “Want More Radical Copyeditor in Your Life?”:

The title “What’s in a word?” appears at the top of the page, followed by the word “patron” in bold.

Definitions of two words follow. Patron (noun): One who protects, supports, or encourages. Patreon (noun): A membership site where people support their favorite creators (artists, writers, etc.) via bite-sized monthly contributions, in exchange for exclusive content and/or the knowledge that they are making community-supported arts possible. 

Finally, the following text appears: Want more radical copyediting in your life? Have a few extra dollars to support your friendly neighborhood radical copyeditor? Join my new Patreon community! Visit

At the bottom of the graphic, the paper the words appear on emerges from a typewriter. Above the typewriter ribbon is the black text www. copyeditor. com with the red word “radical” inserted so that, edited, it reads www. radicalcopyeditor. com.

Why does this page exist? Because folks who are blind and depend on screen readers can’t tell what’s in an image without a description, and an image like this one deserves a more thorough description than can be provided via alt text.
