Shameless welcomes new editor at launch party!
Our spring issue is heading to the printer this week, meaning it’s time for another super-fun launch party! Please mark the afternoon of Saturday, April 21 on your calendar and join us for…
Spring Fever! When: Saturday, April 21, 1-5 p.m. Where: NOW Lounge, 189 Church St. (between Dundas and Queen), Toronto What: Live music, DJs, dancing, magazines, toasts and fun. Details: $5, which includes a copy of the spring issue; all-ages; wheelchair accessible
It’s been months since our last party and, frankly, we miss you! So come help us launch the new issue, say a sniffly goodbye to Nicole and Melinda and welcome our new editorial team!
As we told you last time, Melinda and Nicole are a wee bit tired after three years of running Shameless and will be handing the editorial reins. We’re pleased to announce that Megan Griffith-Greene will be taking over as editor, joined by several new section editors.
Megan’s experience spans activism, arts and journalism. Raised in Toronto, she became an active advocate on youth rights, social justice and education issues while in high school. She has a degree in cultural studies and fine arts from York University, and a degree in journalism from Ryerson, where she was editor of the Ryerson Review of Journalism (Spring 2004). She is also a founding editor and designer of The New Pollution new music review, a web-based magazine and podcast on indie music that launched in February 2006. She is currently a contributing editor at Chatelaine. Say hello to her at firstname.lastname@example.org or, better yet, come to the party and meet her in person!
Also joining the team will be three new section editors: Kate Rae, who will edit features; Jennifer Goldberg, who will handle arts and culture content; and Pike Krpan, who will take on the reviews section. Meanwhile, Stacey May Fowles will join the team in a business development role.
And don’t forget the rest of our existing team, which includes circulation and subscription manager Holland Gidney, art director Sheila Sampath, webmaster Wesley Fok and a collective of smart, creative teen advisors.
Of course, you haven’t gotten rid of Melinda and Nicole completely — they’ll just be moving into an advisory role, helping with special projects, fundraising efforts and long-term planning for the magazine.
See you on April 21!
