A Summer with Shakespeare

There is no better time than summer to bring all sorts of activities outdoors from meals to sports and movies, and even classic plays such as Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale. This month Western University’s Summer Shakespeare Production staged the popular play outdoors at the campus. Check out the July issue of The Beat Magazine to learn what it’s like to stage a production outdoors.

Sneak Peak at Tweak

Good things show up in your Inbox when you least expect it.

As an aspiring writer, I’ve come to learn that quick replies from editors are not common. Sometimes you can wait weeks and even months to hear back from someone about a pitch, job opportunity, or to find out when they will be publishing your latest assignment. I have to say it’s not easy to just sit back and wait, and sometime you can find yourself becoming  borderline stalkerish sending constant emails and leave too many voice mails trying to get any sort of answers.

But as soon as you stop obsessing a breakthrough will arrive- seriously.

This week I got word that a story I had written back in May (yes, that long ago) was going to be published in the lifestyle section of the London Free Press.

Back when I was in j-school and doing shifts at the Free Press (also so very long ago it seems) I got to know the lifestyle editor at the paper and expressed interest in writing for the section. She had assigned me a profile about a local jewellery designer to do on my own time, and I almost forgot all about it until now.

In the last few months as a recent grad I’ve found the waiting game almost too much to bear, but that saying, “Good things come to those who wait” really reins true.

Patience my dear, patience.

Better Late than Never

I always meant to post this up here, and I’m finally getting around to it a few months later….

Last semester I produced a TV news feature about The Forest City Sports and Social Club, a co-ed recreational sport league for adults that recently opened in London. After the researching, interview set-ups, filming and editing, here is the final product for your viewing pleasure.
