CM editor finds full-time job in the 90s!

Whew, that was quick! It was just three issues ago, I was introducing myself to CM readers and now, I'm saying goodbye.

I'll be leaving CM after this issue to become Projects Director of the Association of Manitoba Book Publishers and Managing Editor of the magazine Prairie Books NOW, a full-time position(s). Though my time here was brief, it was thoroughly enjoyable and, if the position at CM were full- instead of part-time, I would surely stay.

Peter Tittenberger will remain Managing Editor of CM and I will do some freelance copy editing in order to help him out.

CM remains one of the finest electronic journals in existence. Keep reading!

Dear CM:

I really enjoyed reading Janice Foster's review of Hazel Hutchins' book [Yancy and Bear]. Hazel is a fireball of energy and a really "pumped up" writer of children's literature. And Canadian. Hooray for "us!"
