This is the first post in my new blog. For years, I have written stories, books and articles or ‘produced content’ (can you tell I don’t like that phrase?) for various partners. This is the beginning of a new life as a publisher, in a more interactive format than I’ve had the privilege to participate in before.
Most of my work will continue to be distributed by important partners, including Ulysses and the Suburban, but this venue will give me a chance to explore topics and profile people who don’t generally make the news. I plan to explore the many styles of non-fiction shorts, including reportage, opinion, reviews and quotes.
If I can hold back my intense serious nature a bit, perhaps I’ll also be able to explore humour too; since I’m usually the one who giggles at others, though, perhaps I’ll just lead you to funny people I love.
As you can see, I also plan to produce a local calendar of events, most of which are produced by local non-profit citizen groups. These are the people who don’t get mentioned much in the daily press, primarily because they don’t have the presence or influence of bigger players. They are crucial actors in a vibrant community, however, so I really want to learn more about them.
If you have any topics you want addressed, please let me know. I look forward to hearing from you.
