As we said last Tuesday, exciting things are happening behind the scenes at Relief. One of the biggest developments is that we are adding to our editorial and support teams in preparation for 2011, which could be the best year for the journal so far. One thing has become clear to us over the almost five years we've been in print: Even more so than funding, bandwidth, paper, and ink, the most critical resource we have is the amazing staff of volunteers who put their time and talents behind our efforts to publish the best spiritual and faith-based writing. So it is with great pleasure that we introduce our new Editorial Assistant, Stephanie S. Smith. Stephanie graduated from Moody Bible Institute with a degree in Communications and Women’s Ministry, which she now puts to work freelancing as a book publicist and writer through her business, (In)dialogue Communications, at www.stephaniessmith.com. After living in Chicago for four years, traveling to Amsterdam for a spell, and then moving back home to Baltimore to plan a wedding, she now lives with her husband in Upstate New York where they make novice attempts at home renovation in their 1930s bungalow. She is a member of the Young Professionals of the Southern Tier and blogs for Moody Publishers at www.moodyfiction.com.
