Big news! On Thursday I start a new, full-time job as an associate editor at Up Here and Up Here Business magazines.

It’s a temporary position, a ten-month maternity leave fill-in, and I’ll be spending part of that time at the head office in Yellowknife, NWT.

I also think it’s going to be kind of cool to work in actual office, with actual people, for a little while at least.

I’ll still be doing some limited freelancing on the side, and of course I’ll be continuing to chime in at World Hum. The job itself is going to be writing-intensive, so keep an eye out for my byline in both mags.
