DSC_0520 copyHello! I’m Kelsey, a freelance writer and researcher living in Montreal. My work has appeared in the National Post, the Toronto Star, National Observer, Maisonneuve, Torontoist and BetaKit, among others. I’m currently a section editor at CIM Magazine, a mining trade publication with an audience of more than 13,000. I manage the front- and back-of-book departments, including our news section, and am also responsible for regularly updating the magazine’s website. I started a year-long editorial project spotlighting the accomplishments and struggles of minority groups in mining, and a weekly mining news recap that helps to boost our weekend traffic numbers.

I’ve written about everything from a behind-the-scenes look at a Toronto subway shutdown to why Doug Ford will likely lose a fight with the feds over Canada’s carbon tax, to how the history of the Troubles influences Northern Ireland’s mine development today. You can see more of my clippings here, and my resume here.

In 2013 I was part of a team that published a joint Ryerson School of Journalism/Toronto Star investigation into kitchen safety and inspection disclosure in institutions that care for vulnerable citizens, which inspired two changes in Toronto Public Health’s disclosure policy and was nominated for a CAJ award.

If you’d like to work with me on a story or project, please get in touch.
