After 45 1/2 years of working in fiction, LizSmith, fiction editor at My Weekly has decided to retire. She'll leave on December 18th.
I'm sure I'm not the only person who'll miss her. Liz always responded to every submission (although as a one woman fiction team she did have to restrict these) giving reasons for any rejection and often suggesting improvements to the story.
Last year I was lucky enough to meet Liz in person and if anything she's even nicer than she seems online.
Best wishes for the future, Liz!
Liz's replacement is Karen Byrom, who has worked for DC Thomson for thirty years.
Hello, Karen. I, and many others I'm sure, look forward to working with you.
