SEMantics

Here I offer just a little about the British Mensa South East England regional newsletter SEMantics from 2000 to the present.

SEMantics means (obviously) South East Mensa antics, though the events and activities of Mensans described are mainly pretty sensible and not crazy as that punning name might suggest to the fanciful reader.

Every region in British Mensa has a monthly newsletter which is sent out with the British Mensa monthly magazine. Each newsletter is edited by a volunteer Mensan editor and I was twice asked to take this on, and I did — just to help the society, Mensa.

In April 2000, our South East England Regional Officer asked me to take it on and I was its editor for 5 years. Then another editor took over and so first she, then three other members, served as editor for almost 12 years.

At the end of November 2016 I was asked by the Regional Officer at the time to take it on again, when the editor who did the job during 2016 became unable to continue.
