Subject: New editor for Abbey Newsletter

New editor for Abbey Newsletter

From: Ellen McCrady <abbeypub>
Date: Saturday, February 15, 2003
Next August, I will step down in order to give more attention to the
Mold Reporter, and to begin semi-retirement.  Since a large number
of subscribers have prepaid for up to three years in advance, and
since many readers value the information they receive from the
newsletter, there is a strong need for it to continue.

The Abbey Publications office will coordinate the transition to the
new editor, who will probably assume ownership of the publication.
Legal and financial aspects of the transfer can be discussed later.

Editing the Abbey Newsletter has been close to a full-time job, and
has made it possible to pay a modest salary to the editor.  The job
could be made less time-consuming by narrowing the scope or by
increasing the number of editors contributing material, like the
WAAC Newsletter does.  It could be made more valuable to the reader
(especially for the Events column and other time-sensitive material)
by publishing more often.  The decisions are up to the new editor.

Anyone who wants to get a closer look behind the scenes before
making a big commitment can serve as a guest editor for a month, or
visit us in Austin, or simply ask questions.

Interested parties can send an e-mail message to
abbeypub [at] grandecom__net, or call the office at 512-929-3992.
