From the editor.

When the Writing Lab Newsletter was being redesigned awhile back, I asked the designer to keep the pages open and clean, with a lot of unused breathing space. And it's been my attempt to keep issues looking that way, with ample margins to write notes in or just to keep the uncluttered look. But April is not a month where that's easily adhered to. There are numerous job announcements, conference announcements, and news of plans for a new writing center directory. So, please excuse what is an unduly crowded issue.

Amidst all the announcements, you'll find Kathleen Welsch's article on how we can offer numerous professional experiences and skills to tutors to enhance their own education as well as their career opportunities. Then Paula Gillespie, Paul Heidebrect, and Lorelle Lamascus discuss a new program at Marquette University for the writing center to train grad students in other disciplines to return to their departments to assist with writing.

Jeanne Smith reviews Bill Macauley and Nick Mauriello's Marginal Words, Marginal Works?, the winner of the 2007 IWCA scholarship award for the best book of the year. To conclude this issue, J. Tremblay reflects on how he managed as an older tutor to connect with the students he was tutoring.

A crowded issue, but in a more positive light, I hope, an issue packed with worthwhile reading.
