Quill & Quire editor Sue Carter will be leaving at the end of the year. She’ll be joining the Inuit Art Quarterly as deputy editor.
Sue joined Q&Q almost 10 years ago and in that time she has left an indelible mark on the magazine. She brought a clear story sense, sharp writing, and deft editing to her work as well as an ability to juggle the dozens of details necessary to keep a magazine running smoothly.
During her tenure, she led a redesign of both the magazine and quillandquire.com, introducing such popular additions as Book Making and the Agony Editor column.
Sue worked closely with the magazine’s community to ensure Q&Q reflected and explored relevant issues. She added a workplace survey on sexual harassment. She also contributed to the book industry at large by being part of numerous panels and advisory groups.
Her role at Inuit Art Quarterly, in many ways, is a perfect pairing, bringing together so much of her interests, knowledge, and abilities. We wish her the very best. She will be greatly missed.
The role of editor will be filled in the new year with more details to follow. —Alison Jones, publisher
