Maisonneuve’s tenth anniversary and Magazine of the Year win

There have been some very exciting developments at Maisonneuve lately. First, on June 7, we won Magazine of the Year—the industry’s most prestigious prize—at the National Magazine Awards. It was a nice affirmation of the direction in which, as editor-in-chief, I’ve tried to take Maisonneuve. You can read the text of my acceptance speech here.

We also celebrated the magazine’s tenth birthday earlier this spring with a big anniversary issue. It was hugely well-received and garnered a lot of coverage. I was interviewed by CTV, CBC Radio, the Montreal Gazette and others, and I compiled the top ten sentences in Maisonneuve’s history for the National Post.

Finally, on a more personal note, I recently was accepted to the Banff Centre’s acclaimed Literary Journalism Residency. I’ll at the Centre for most of July, working on a single long-form piece of narrative non-fiction. And in the most recent issue of Maisonneuve, you can read an essay I wrote about the strange-but-true history of animal trials.
