Oh, look. It's March already. How did that happen?

We warned you last month that this was going to be a busy year for Editors Victoria, and this jam-packed newsletter is proof of that. We have an update from the Working Party who are charged with managing the transition of the state-based societies to a national body, a report from the first workshop for prospective mentors who are participating in the National Mentoring Program, a call for papers for next year's national Write Edit Index conference, and important information for members who are considering sitting the IPEd accreditation exam on 3 May.

We have beaten down our jealous hearts with a big stick and interviewed Susannah Chambers, the current Beatrice Davis fellow. Susannah is currently swanning around New York, rubbing shoulders with publishers, agents, editors and authors as she researches trends in young adult publishing.

We also celebrate World Grammar Day on 4 March, and address the big issues (business cards and panic attacks) in our regular columns, Micro Mentor and Dr Ed.

But remember, we're never too busy to hear about you! If you're working on a great project or have landed an exciting job, get in touch and let us spread the news. Please don't be shy.

Your eds,

Lorna Hendry and Kate Goldsworthy
