After a warm and beautiful summer with a very inspiring conference at the University of Warsaw, most of us are back from holiday and continue to work, think, write, or teach in the realm of rhetoric. In order to keep us all informed and to enable a more vivid exchange among the members, the Board of the Society has decided to launch a regular newsletter. It will contain information on the following issues:

1. News from the society
2. Upcoming events (conferences, summer schools, workshops, etc.)
3. Calls for papers
4. Job posts
5. Important book publications
