Writing & Editing Work

Writing Experience

I have done freelance writing and editing work for a wide variety of outlets on topics as varied as diabetes, gardening and sanctuary cities. In addition to writing for the publications listed below, I’ve also written for horror magazine Rue Morgue, teen mag Shameless and The Hinton Parklander, a weekly newspaper based in Hinton, Alberta. I’ve also created quizzes and list-style articles for Slice.ca‘s previous incarnation, Life Network.

Blogging Experience


GeorgeMichael.com Æccess-only Blog

In the summer/fall of 2011, I blogged from the road while travelling across Europe with George Michael’s Symphonica: The Orchestral Tour. While this blog is no longer accessible on GeorgeMichael.com, I have posted a few of my favourite entries over here.

Puppies & Iraq

This is where I blog about a wide variety of topics including Toronto, politics and cute animals. It’s also a place for me to play around with WordPress.

Stuff Lindsay Bought

While I started my product review blog so that I could keep track of which of my purchases were smart ones, this blog now has a small but loyal following. I also use it to play around with Blogger and various Google tools.

Editing Experience

From the summer of 2007 until the fall of 2010, I was an Associate Editor at This Magazine, where I looked after the front-of-the-book section (aka This & That). My many tasks in this role included coming up with story ideas, reviewing pitches, assigning stories, managing freelancers and of course, editing copy. Here are just a few of the many pieces that I edited.
