Stuart Woods has been named editor of the Canadian publishing magazine, Quill & Quire.
Woods had worked as a Q&Q staffer for two years, and has transitioned into the editor role following the death of journalist Derek Weiler in April. Before working as a print journalist, Woods’ career began as an editor at the Montreal publishing house, Price-Patterson.
Here is Woods’ statement, from the release: “I would like to continue to build on Quill & Quire‘s reputation for in-depth industry analysis, breaking news coverage, and must-read reviews of upcoming books, while at the same time improving the way the magazine–in print and online–acts as a resource for the Canadian book publishing community as a whole. I am excited by the challenge presented by this opportunity, while at the same time saddened by the circumstances through which it has come about.”
