The crew at Aurealis have undergone an overhaul, with old hands retiring to direct their energies elsewhere -checkout the website for the full run down but here are some highlights:
We have appointed Elsie Michael in the new position of Reviews Manager. All reviews will now appear first in Aurealis issues and will be archived on the Aurealis website later.
We have appointed Julian Thumm in the new position of News Editor. He will be seeking out and collecting the sorts of news items that Carissa has in the past.
Our Social Media Coordinator, Dan Allan, will be placing the news items, depending on what they are, on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or Google+, as well as a new Aurealis blog. You will no longer have to wait for the monthly AurealisXpress to get the news.
We have appointed Angelika Arvela as our new Submissions Manager, replacing Sari Webb. After a short break, we are now open to submissions again. We thank you for your patience.[source]
So new blood and probably a better approach to the news/ events happening side of things(near impossible to run a newsletter service in the age of Facebook and Twitter). I shall miss Carissa Thorp’s work and no doubt will miss a few other people that have been a regular feature. I wish them the best of luck.
