Article on digital archiving in Canadian Notes and Queries (CNQ) is now online

... so the second piece I want to alert you too is an essay I published a few issues ago in the pages of Canadian Notes & Queries (CNQ) about author archives in the digital age. The piece first appeared last October in the print edition only, but due to a request, the editor at CNQ decided to add it to the website. So if you missed it then, you can go check it out now!

Covering StanFest for the Globe and Mail

Yep, I know. It's been months since I've updated this blog. But the truth is it has been a bit quiet on home front here over the last little while. (Though I will have some fairly huge news to share fairly son!) In the meantime, I do have TWO new pieces of writing to share with you.

The first is a feature article I wrote this weekend about the Stan Rogers Music Festival for the Globe and Mail. This year marks the 35th anniversary of Stan Rogers' death, and I've had a long, if somewhat complicated, relationship with the man's music. The Globe was generous enough to grant me 1,000 words to reflect on that, as well to provide a bit of a travelogue about the festival itself. The above article - the final draft of which I submitted while on the PEI ferry en route to see my parents after leaving the festival grounds (thank you WiFi!) - was the result.

As for the second piece, let me keep the Google Search Engine gods happy and put that in a separate post ...
