Handmade campaign: books without batteries

Saturday, August 20th, 2011

One of the major issues in the publishing/literary world that I find most fascinating is the argument for and against e-readers. For those of you that have been reading my blog for a while, you know that I work best when I can get my hands dirty and go through paper copies of my writing […]

I don’t normally like to do this, but I’ll make an exception this time around. I got to interview one of my favourite bands last week, They Might Be Giants. The article is in this week’s edition of The Lance. It was really cool to talk to John Linnell, he was really friendly! Here comes […]

Celebrate your freedom to read

Tuesday, February 19th, 2008

I have lots of good news to post about, but first I wanted to post this article I wrote about Freedom to Read Week for The Lance. It was also picked up on the Canadian University Press wire, so that’s always exciting. Let’s say you couldn’t read your favourite book because someone didn’t agree with […]

Book Vs. Movie

Tuesday, July 17th, 2007
