CM announces new editor!

To the great relief of overworked managing editor Peter Tittenberger and all of the volunteers who have been faithfully putting CM together for the last two months, CM has now hired a new editor.

And that's me. Hi, I'm Charmagne de Veer, Administrative Director of the Association of Manitoba Book Publishers, former editor of Blizzard Publishing's International Readers' Theatre script service, and a former arts journalist in both Winnipeg and Toronto.

I'm extremely pleased to be joining CM, a magazine that is both popular and highly respected in Canadian publishing circles. CM is unique in that it is a combination of both a long-standing, well-established periodical and an exciting new electronic publication.

I'm looking forward to working with all of the great volunteer reviewers who make this magazine the success it is and hope that readers and reviewers alike will feel free to email me with suggestions on how we can work together to make CM the best it can be.
