If she doesn't know how to form the plural of "writer," I won't hire her as an editor

>>Hi, I’m Dee Stewart and I write Christian Fiction Blog to support writer’s of Christian Faith. I started Christian Fiction Blog in 2004 to help other writer’s deal with the sometimes overwhelming prospect of book promotion and book events marketing while still running a household and increasing in spiritual maturity.<<

Dee says she has been an editor "for ten years." An editor should know that it's "10," not "ten," "writers," not "writer's," and "faith," not "Faith." She won't get any editing business from me.
Years ago political satirist Tom Lehrer sang, "Don't write naughty words on walls if you can't spell."
Editors who are promoting their business should make sure that their words don't need to be edited.
