Portrait of Penny Modra

Penny Modra

Penny Modra is the editorial director at The Good Copy, a Melbourne-based writing school and consultancy. She is a regular ‘grammar enthusiast’ guest on ABC Radio Melbourne and teaches editing in RMIT University's Professional Writing and Editing program. Penny writes occasional features for the Guardian, Vice Australia, Frankie and Smith Journal.

Before co-founding The Good Copy, Penny spent seven years as editorial director of The Thousands city guides nationally and as a visual arts reviewer for the Age and the Sunday Age. For fun, she has copyedited everything from Head Full of Snakes magazine to PhDs that are due 'quite soon'.
