CHANGING OF THE GUARD PARTY

THIS Magazine will be holding a party to celebrate the changing of the guard on Thursday July 14th 8:00 PM, at Tortilla Flats 458 Queen St West, on the corner of Queen and Augusta in Toronto.
Help us welcome THIS Magazine’s new editor, Emily Shultz. A two-time This Magazine Great Canadian Literary Hunt winner, Emily joins the magazine upon the heels of her editorship at Broken Pencil Magazine, after steering the content of this independent culture magazine and completing 12 outreach events in cities across Canada.
With a background in feminist publishing and small-press book publishing, Emily has also written articles for Toronto’s Eye Weekly. Her other editorial credits include Outskirts: Women Writing from Small Places (Sumach Press, Spring 2002), and The Pocket Canon, a playful anonymous anthology, dubbed “best independent publishing venture” by NOW Magazine in 2003.
Emily’s short story collection Black Coffee Night was a Danuta Gleed nominee for Best First Fiction in Canada in 2002, and she was chosen as one of four authors for The Globe and Mail’s under-30 spotlight series.
In addition to welcoming Emily, help THIS Magazine say thank you and good luck to outgoing editor Patricia D’Souza, as she gets ready for her big move to Ottawa to take a position as an editor for Canadian Geographic.
Patricia has a long history with THIS Magazine, and took over as editor in March 2004. We’re sad she’s leaving, but know that she will have a great experience as an editor for Canadian Geographic.
