Just happy to be nominated

Maisonneuve landed ten National Magazine Award nominations yesterday. (Technically, we got eleven, although for some reason the final tally doesn’t include the nods for Best Student Writer.) All the nominations are for work that happened before I started at the magazine, and there are about a billion noms in all, but it’s still pretty good. Especially when you look at the other mags in the top ten: the rest are either heavy hitters (the Walrus, L’actualité, Toronto Life, Maclean’s, Report on Business) or lifestyle publications (explore, Chatelaine, Cottage Life, enRoute). Plus, Maisonneuve is the only quarterly in the top ten. Everyone pretends not to care about these things, but, you know, recognition is encouraging.
