A warm welcome to new Managing Editor Rilla Friesen!

To our Thistledown authors, suppliers and supporters:

We’re writing today to let you know about some recent changes at TDP. At the end of April, Caroline Walker left her position as Managing Editor. We are grateful to Caroline for her contributions and we wish her all the best in the future.

We now officially welcome Rilla Friesen to the Thistledown team. Rilla comes to us with solid experience as Managing Editor and Book Review Editor at the Canadian Journal of History, as Editor at the literary magazine Grain, as an active board member at Jack Pine Press, and most importantly, as someone with a passion for literary publishing and great writing. Rilla assumes her new role of Managing Editor on June 6th.

Liz Philips has done a terrific job as Interim Managing Editor during this transition period, and is now returning to her role as Editorial Director and Acquisitions Editor.

We know that you will welcome Rilla warmly, and we ask that you direct your questions about administrative matters to her at this email address: [email protected].
