January 29 2010 Editor Assistance Newsletter

Greetings, everyone!

I know I am still behind on email. I have a block of messages from everyone that I need to read and get to. I am really sorry about the delay. I keep thinking I am about to catch up, and a whole series of things have just hit me in January. This past week alone saw a catastrophic meltdown of my mail file and my cat of 15 years, Hamlet, had to be put to sleep. I have great faith that things will quiet down sometime soon and I will get back to every message. Please be patient with me a short while longer and I'll answer your messages as soon as I can.


I think somehow I've forgotten to send out the date for our Chicago gathering in May! Tallying up everybody's votes, the winning weekend was May 22-23. Locals say that this range is great because it's reasonably warm but not killer humid. The next step is to start planning a hotel and our talk topics. It would be a great help if a few editors could help me out with these organizing these things. If you have any interest in helping with the Chicago gathering, please let me know!


We're in our final week of Mused submissions for the upcoming Spring issue of our literary magazine! We formed Mused several years ago to help you get your creative side out to the world. We run photos, drawings, poetry, short stories, plays, real life stories, and much more. We actively want to promote your creative side! Feel free to publicize Mused to all your readers too, it might be that there are some great ferret photos and fish drawings that your members would love to share!

Let's have our Distance Learning Chat this coming Monday night, Feb 1, at 9pm EST. We will record the chat so anyone who can't make it can read the log whenever they wish. We'll talk about how to find the perfect online school, how to know it's accredited, how to get loans, and much more! Many (if not most!) editors were interested in online learning in 2010, so let's get ourselves started!
