Journal 95 and Editors Role

Post by freewargamesrules » Mon Apr 30, 2018 12:08 pm

I am currently working on Journal 95 which will be 44 pages. Unfortunately it is not a very balanced issue (but a chef has to work with the ingredients to hand) and it will use up all of our articles leaving nothing at all in reserve. I'm hoping to finish it in the next couple of months.

I intend to stand down as Editor at the completion of that issue. When I volunteered my services at the end of 2014 it was only as a temporary measure until a new editor could be found. Now nearly four years, and 13 issues later I feel I have taken the Journal as far as I can.

Therefore, the Society will be looking for a new editor. I am quite happy to give any advice and help to anyone who wishes to take on this role.

I am hoping to have a meeting with the rest of the team before stepping down.

Thanks for taking on the role and doing so well under difficult circumstances. Sorry to hear you can't continue, but understand it must take up a lot of your time as well as being quite frustrating at times.

Thanks again,
