Welcome to the May newsletter for Editors Victoria. This month we have the lowdown, and the stand up, of managing your body while at your desk – Jessica Hoadley reports on our April dinner with guest osteopath Claire Richardson.

Jackey Coyle outlines current committee and IPEd activities in her president’s report, and calls for people to join the committee. We also have the regular IPEd conference update; for those who haven’t yet booked, earlybird registration is still open.

We meet some of the coordinators who link mentors and mentees in the IPED National Mentoring Program – often these relationships cross state borders. Paul Bugeja sets us straight on Comic Sans, as shared on social media, and we spot a typo on a big sign at the recent garden show in Melbourne. Our etymology subject, courtesy of Sally Holdsworth, is a word that would surprise most of us, but the World Wide Web snippet shares some high-profile typos (to make us all feel a bit better when it happens to us).

Don’t forget to check out the upcoming dinners and training courses. Remember to log in to get your member discount when you book.

Have a great month.
