It’s a done deal: the Newfoundland & Labrador twig and the Nova Scotia twig have officially merged into the Atlantic twig, or Editors Atlantic. We are 64 members strong, representative of Editors Canada members in New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland & Labrador.
Twenty-one people attended our first joint meeting by Zoom on Tuesday, June 15, 2021.
We have three co-chairs: Sandy Newton (Cupids, NL) and Molly Rookwood and Margo Grant (both Halifax, NS). Our new email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
At present, the two former twigs each maintain websites connected to the Editors Canada site. It will take some time to create a new Editors Atlantic website that combines the information of both twigs, so until then we’re retaining our separate websites.
Zoom eliminates distance, enabling our far-flung members to easily meet, and we will do this for formal meetings such as AGMs. Our smaller sub-groups, such as the Wolfville Editors’ Bunch, will continue to meet on an informal basis, either via Zoom or in person.
