Letter From the Editor: Passing on the Torch

It’s been my pleasure to be the managing editor of The Editors’ Weekly since 2013, when the blog was just a year old. This month I’ll be stepping down from the position and handing the reins over to Lucy Payette. It’s been a rewarding journey, and I’m excited to see what the next phase of The Editors’ Weekly brings.

Letter from Editor on Typewriter

I first joined Editors Canada in 2007 and volunteered in several smaller roles before starting as the managing editor. Taking on this more prominent role for the national blog was a fantastic opportunity. Over the years I learned new skills, networked with other communications professionals and connected closely with the Editors Canada community. The greatest pleasure has been in collaborating with so many talented colleagues. I hope our readers have enjoyed the journey as much as I have.

Thank you to everyone who has written blog posts and to everyone who reads them. You make the blog a success!
