About the Atlantic Twig
Our group has approximately 60 members, 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 currently have two co-chairs: Heather White and Melanie Pitman (of Halifax and West Porter's Lake, NS, respectively). Our email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are revisiting what our members are looking for from the group, with a view to enhancing community benefits. The loose plan is to keep Zoom professional development events -- Zoom eliminates distance, enabling our far-flung members to easily meet -- but also focus more on local, in-person events, post-pandemic. For example, one of our smaller subgroups, the Wolfville Editors' Bunch, had met for lunch regularly pre-pandemic; we hope to support this and other get-togethers as an antidote to working remotely from home, in isolation.
Last year, we created a new Editors Atlantic website that combines the information of both twigs, helping to reinforce our distinctive regional identity.
