I’ve mentioned before that I have been the editor of the TESL Nova Scotia newsletter since November of last year. The July issue has just come out and can be downloaded here.
Now three issues in, I’m getting the hang of the editor role–timing of submissions, setting up and using layout software, working with a copy editor, sourcing photos. What’s been interesting in reviving a defunct publication is the content. I want to produce a publication that’s interesting and relevant, and I also want to encourage educators from a wide variety of contexts and backgrounds around the province to submit. As the newsletter hasn’t been published for a while, it’s not on anyone’s radar, so it’s taken quite a bit of personal solicitation and encouragement/convincing. Hopefully ground is being laid for the future of the newsletter.
