I am the editor of the Diocesan Post, the newsletter of the Anglican Diocese of Island and Inlets. The diocese covers Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands, Broughton Archipelago and Kingcome Inlet. The Post is published from September-June; four issues are print and six digital. The newspaper is sent to all clergy and parishioners in the diocese’s forty-six churches. I contact clergy and parishioners for content, copy edit their pieces to conform to Canadian Press style, and conduct interviews and write the lead pieces. I then organise and compile all content and images for the designer, liaise with the proofreader, and complete a final proofread.
Below you can click through the April 2021 issue, my first as the full-fledged editor! Prior to this issue, I supported the outgoing editor with proofreading. I’m particularly proud of the cover article for this issue and it was a lot of fun to write.
