    Donning an Editor’s Hat

    July 7th, 2014     by Christine Smith McFarlane     Comments

    I’m a writer first and foremost, but since joining Shameless Magazine over a year ago, I have had to also don the hat of an editor for the column “Beyond the Books.” The Beyond the Books column was started when I joined team Shameless and it aims to give a voice to Indigenous peoples and discuss issues that are not normally talked about in books or the classroom.

    Fashion Issue Out Now!

    June 30th, 2014     by Sheila Sampath     Comments

    Even the lightest piece of clothing can carry the heaviest weight. A simple t-shirt is made up of the threads of nature, labour, struggle and resilience through colonialism, capitalism and globalization. It’s then re-imagined in our wardrobes to signal culture, style and politics, to reflect our personalities and to subvert or challenge stifling norms. Fashion does this in the most personal of ways — on our bodies — leaving us with a lot to unravel. READ MORE

    Made with love: Shameless presents the love and relationships issue

    January 5th, 2014     by Sheila Sampath     Comments

    I’ve been editing Shameless for three-and-a-half years now, and this letter, by far, has been the hardest for me to sit down and write. In working on this issue, I’ve come to realize that love and relationships aren’t things that we can talk about in abstract ways, because we experience them in such concrete and deeply personal ways. Relationships are loaded (everybody has strong opinions about how things should be), scary (they require honesty, trust, … READ MORE

    New issue out now!

    September 27th, 2013     by Sheila Sampath     Comments

    When the Shameless editorial staff first proposed a sports issue I started having flashbacks to gym class: the thanks-for-trying Canada Fitness certificates, never being able to catch anything ever, the pain in my chest every time I tried to run. Coming in last, getting picked last, hiding my body in the change room. Letting everybody down. I dealt with the trauma back then by learning to fake cramps through pretty much any physical activity. Eventually … READ MORE

    The Shameless Justice issue: on its way!

    June 10th, 2013     by Sheila Sampath     Comments

    I can’t remember the first time someone told me that “life isn’t fair,” but I know that I’ve heard it too many times to count. It’s hard to remember a month in my adult life where I haven’t had it said to me, and, in the process of sitting down to write this letter, I realize that it’s entirely likely a month hasn’t gone by when I haven’t said it to someone else. When I reflect … READ MORE

The article can be found on page 18 of the summer issue of Bitch (our mention is on page 19!), and in its entirety online at Bitch’s website.
