Congratulations to Kerry Davies AE and Stephanie Holt AE

Congratulations to Kerry Davies AE and Stephanie Holt AE, who have been selected from a very competitive field to work on the third edition of The editor’s companion, published by Cambridge University Press. Author of the first and second editions Janet Mackenzie DE bequeathed the royalties of the title to IPEd, ensuring that our association with her well-loved text will continue. Both Kerry and Stephanie have had long careers in editing and been involved across all aspects of the industry as well as with IPEd. They also knew Janet well and will be able to update the text while bringing her delightful voice to editors at all stages of their careers.
