The Grumpy Grammarian

The Grump

About Myself.

I’m Autumn Tompkins, The Grumpy Grammarian.
I wasn’t always grumpy—well, that isn’t exactly true (thanks, chronic illnesses). I just never embraced my real personality. That is until I could no longer ignore it. Copywriting for clients from scratch was painful. I couldn’t take it anymore. So I transformed from copywriter to copy editor and embraced a part of my personality I kept hidden. I put on my big girl panties, wiggled a little bit, and giggled. But not like a schoolgirl. More like Dr. Evil while rubbing my hands together.

Grump. Grump. Grump.

But don’t worry…While I’m a rigorous, skilled critic, make no mistake — I am your ALLY


  • Judge you because of bad grammar.
  • Cramp your style.
  • Change your copy’s message.



  • Your copy should create a connection with your
    customers, so they buy into you.
  • In breaking all the grammar “rules”, so your
    customers know you have a strong command of
    expressive language.
  • Unconsciously overlooked errors cause you to lose
    your credibility and affect your bottom line.


You’re someone who understands the power of copywriting. And I PROMISE TO treat you with respect & transform your copy, so your words work for you. Not against you
