Posts Tagged ‘The Walrus’

Since I last updated the website (I know, I know) I’ve had a heap of new stuff published. In July, I had three magazine pieces appear: In Canadian Geographic, I wrote a short feature about my experience riding with the bike couriers of Montreal. (The story’s not online, but there’s a short accompanying blog post.) For Outside, I reviewed Blair Braverman’s wonderful new memoir, Welcome to the Goddamn Ice Cube. And for Southwest: The Magazine’s national parks issue, I wrote about scattering my mom’s ashes in Canyonland National Park. (The story starts on page 74.)

For Hakai, a new-ish Canadian online magazine based on Vancouver Island, and dedicated to “coastal science and society,” I wrote a quick thing about coastal horror movies, and something longer about a Nunavut community’s fight against oil and gas development – and how Greenpeace got involved.

I wrote a handful of online pieces for The Walrus: dispatches from Pond Inlet and Cambridge Bay, in Nunavut, and a look at the Yukon’s recent territorial election.

I stepped down as a contributing editor for Up Here at the end of May, but I’m still writing for the magazine occasionally – including a profile of my old mining crew chief, a quick dispatch from the Royal Tour, and this short essay about going to survival school.

As always, I’ve got lots more coming soon…

For Longreads, I sat down (well, virtually sat down) with ace freelancers Jason Fagone, Josh Dean, and May Jeong to talk about the business of freelance writing.

Here’s a short essay I wrote for Up Here’s sports issue about the steep learning curve of outdoor sports in the Yukon: Swimming in Cold Water.

And I wrote a dispatch for The Walrus about the challenges of maintaining natural golf greens at 64 degrees north.

I also wrapped up my year-long Pacific Standard column, Dispatches From a Changing Arctic, with one last entry. But that’s not the last you’ll hear from me at Pacific Standard – my print feature story about the impact of a growing cruise industry in the Northwest Passage is due out in May! The photo above was from my incredible cruise through the Passage last summer…
