I have worked in print journalism for nearly ten years, and as a copyeditor and check sub for nearly eight of those years. I now work as the check sub leader for a group of more than sixty regional community newspapers. Part of my role has involved regularly providing grammar and style tips to individual journalists and copyeditors as well as drafting tips for the company's editorial training and quality control manager to send to the company's 400+ journalists plus subeditors. Last year I copyedited a 100,000-word novel's final draft before it was pitched to publishers. I recently came equal first out of 330,953 test-takers in the US version of an online English spelling test, and 48th out of 10,002 test-takers in an online UK English grammar test for writing professionals. I also have some familiarity with the Chicago Manual of Style, and have a copy of the latest edition as well as an online subscription.
