Freelancers' lunch

by Susan Pierotti

Perhaps it was the spring weather, the remarkable sunshine, or a good excuse to avoid commas, colons and comments to authors, that tempted around 15 editors to come to the September Freelancers' Lunch at The Fitz Café on Thursday 19 September 2019. Ranging from past and current committee members to first-timers, there was, as usual, much laughter, sharing of ideas, and encouragement. We even had a guest editor from Sydney! We welcomed Mary-Jo O’Rourke, our previous Freelancers' Lunch organiser, and discovered that many of us will be attending her course in November on academic editing.

Meeting at these lunches fosters camaraderie that is necessary in our chosen but solo profession.
