eS44 2017

My latest issue of eSense features a stellar line-up of luminaries in the world of professional language workers. We have fascinating articles by the likes of Rich Adin aka An American Editor, Katherine Barber, Canada's Word Lady and from the other side of the pond we have John Espirian, the technical director of the Society for Editors and Proofreaders (SfEP) in the UK. Besides these three guest contributors, we also have a stunning line-up of articles by our usual suspects eSense columnists aka copyeditors, Sally Hill, Anne Hodgkinson and Marianne Orchard. I know I've said it before, but it's worth repeating (again and again) (and again), I couldn't produce the house organ of SENSE (if you'll pardon the expression) without the professional support of my Three Graces.

3GracesTo quote GovtMint.com where I found this lovely coin: "The Graces bestowed joy, goodwill and well-being to the world and represented qualities revered by the Greeks. Each personifies beauty, charm and joy and together they symbolize the power of unity and support – all of which are still valued in our modern world."

For me the Graces symbolize the power of unity, support and collaboration, and as I said above (and probably will say again), as editor of eSense, I couldn't do without them. If you want to understand why I feel so proud of our latest collaborative effort, download your free copy here eSense 44 | 2017.

Happy reading!
