Communicating technical information
as you intend

"Judith Stitt is one of the most dedicated people I have ever worked with. As an editor, she has not only top skills for handling details, but also the drive to understand the substance of a text and its larger shape."

Judith Stitt, the principal of TekEDIT TM, has worked in technical communications for over 25 years, 17 years while on staff at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (until 2002).

Judy served on the Council of the Boston Chapter of the Society for Technical Communication from 2006 to 2008. In 2004, Judy founded a Technical Editing special interest group for the Chapter and coordinated well-attended monthly meetings for the membership through two program seasons (October 2004 through May 2006).

At MIT, Judy served as the first editor for the Ceramics Processing Research Laboratory. She was then invited to oversee communications during the startup phase of the Leaders for Manufacturing (LFM) Program, whose management awarded her an appreciation plaque for her contributions.

As senior staff editor for the Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change and the Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, Judy's initiatives helped boost these organizations' annual media coverage from one to 85 mentions in the press, including the New York Times and other national publications.

Prior to working at MIT, Judy served as a technical and instructional systems writer and project director at ANCO/Boston, after earning a B.S. degree in chemistry from Allegheny College in Meadville, Pennsylvania.
