Food, fun, and friendship—and, of course, the highs and lows of editing—were all on display at the Editors Kingston holiday social.
Seven twiggers, both veterans and newcomers, gathered at Milestones on Princess Street in Kingston. More than twice that number had planned to come, but unfortunately, Mother Nature chose that day to snow and blow, keeping many people from making the trip from out of town and even across town.
But, as the song says, though the weather outside was frightful, inside it was warm and delightful.
Coming Up January 8
While the weather was disappointing for its effect on our social, the memory of it will set the mood for our January program!
Former twig member and continuing “friend” John Thompson will share his experiences working for Nunatsiaq News, editing in and about the Canadian Arctic!
Watch this space for more details.
