Such a great summer of conferences, mild weather, FIFA games, reading vacations, meditation retreats, bachelorette parties, 5K runs, TIFF … and now we are shifting into our fall season that begins on September 21 with Toronto’s exceptional book fair, The Word On The Street.
At WOTS this year, TEC has “friended” Shawn Micallef, author of The Trouble with Brunch: Work, Class and the Pursuit of Leisure, published by Coach House Books. Our team editor Mary Ann Mazey will be attending the reading and picking up a copy of the book. She’ll be writing up her adventures at WOTS in an upcoming blog.
Another big piece of news: The Editing Company is beginning its 7th year!
