About BoldFaceVolunteering for BoldFace | Edition: Editors Toronto newsletter

Edition was the Editors Toronto newsletter published from October 2005 until March 2013, in print and later in PDF. Editors Toronto launched its online blog, BoldFace, to replace the newsletter, to continue sharing important news and updates with our members and other editors in our community. The newsletter made a triumphant return in January 2020 as a monthly email to our subscribers. The newsletter covers all Editors Toronto news and announcements, members updates, and recent BoldFace articles.

Edition is only available in PDF and requires Adobe Acrobat Reader to be viewed and printed.
