It’s a relief (to me) and a pleasure to announce that Kathryn Para, Canadian novelist, filmmaker and playwright, has joined Numéro Cinq as Production Editor. I am optimistic that Kathryn’s presence will herald a new age of clarity and efficiency at NC and that she will find many ways to contribute to the magazine’s advancement.
