“It’s been a privilege to write for Boundless for the past 3 years, and Ted Slater is a big part of the reason why. Ted stands out as a genuinely encouraging editor who honestly cares about writers. (That’s an increasingly scarce commodity in an era when some mags barely even acknowledge their freelancers’ work.) He’s helped me grow in my craft, recognizing and utilizing my individual strengths as a scribe. I don’t know where God will take him next, but I hope I’ll have the opportunity to work with Ted again.”

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Mr. Ted Slater over the last four years during which time I submitted 11 articles to his attention. As editor of Boundless, a popular webzine for young adults, he provided clear guidance on the tone, length, and manner in which articles were to be submitted to his attention. He consistently demonstrated an exceptionally high level of thoughtfulness in his editorial feedback. When he needed to make minor adjustments to my writing, he always preserved my authorial voice and increased the article’s accessibility for the target audience. His knowledge of grammar and diction, as well as his knack for style and creativity, are superb. He is also quite skilled with the ins and outs of html code on at least one platform (Moveable Type). Beyond that, I have found Mr. Slater to be a man of strong, godly character. He has always shown himself to be solidly rooted and biblically-grounded. He has a Christ-exalting passion to assist the rising generation launch into full-orbed adulthood for maximal impact in the kingdom of God. I commend him to you wholeheartedly.”
