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. (The rest of the time I’ll be working here in Whitehorse.) I’m excited to get to know a second northern Canadian city, and to work on a pair of magazines that I really admire. 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. (And you can get a head start with the latest issue of Up Here Business, which includes my profile of local mushing legend Frank Turner of Muktuk Adventures.)
