Inexplicably, given the lack of activity, April seems to have flown by!
• Halifax-area editors met virtually via Zoom on April 6, while the Wolfville Editors’ Bunch held their regular monthly lunch (via Zoom) on Wednesday, April 15.
• Branches and twigs met online on April 18. We’ll need to submit a budget request for the twig, based on our last few years’ expenditures and what we think we’ll need over the next year for any planned activities.
• Keep an eye out for announcements regarding lunch meetings in your email (check your spam folder) and on our Facebook page (Editors in the Maritimes).
Beginning May 4, Nicole Watkins-Campbell is offering Editing for Plainer Legal Writing online through PlainLanguageAcademy.com. Interested folks can register now at https://bit.ly/35MnGxS
