Member news: December 2018

Editors Ottawa-Gatineau member Marion Kennedy teamed up with her cousin Bill Kennedy of Belleville and Tellwell of Victoria to publish his book Putting the Outside Inside Kids: A Father’s Algonquin Journey with His Daughter. It will catch the attention of anyone who would like to be carried away from everyday life into the magic of a canoe trip. With parents and grandparents in the writer’s mind, the book illustrates how nature can engender self-confidence, curiosity and a spirit of adventure in their children and grandchildren. Bill’s book can be ordered through his website.

The Abbotsford Arts Council recently honoured long-time Editors British Columbia member Philip Sherwood with their 2018 Arty Award for the Literary Arts. Sherwood’s business helps individuals, families, organizations and communities tell their stories and preserve them in print. This is the second time that the Arts Council has recognized Sherwood’s work.

Editors Québec member John Sweet was acknowledged at the 2018 Scotiabank Giller Prize gala for his work as a copy editor. Esi Edugyan, the winner of the $100,000 prize, thanked him in her acceptance speech on Monday, November 19.

“It’s awfully nice to be recognized for one’s work,” says John. “Truly a moment to remember and cherish! And a welcome reminder that our work as copy editors is valued.”
