Print readers of This, please take note: “After the Tigers,” which starts on page 28 of the November-December 2009 issue, and has been posted online today, is missing one crucial detail: the author’s name. Though writer Meena Nallainathan‘s name appears on the contributors page of the magazine, and her name is attached to the story in the table of contents, it was regrettably left off the opening spread of the article. Ouch.
Needless to say, we’re mortified by this error and have apologized to Meena for the mistake. I’d like to do so again here publicly. The talented writers who work with This do so because they believe in the magazine’s mission and want to tell stories that wouldn’t otherwise find a home in the Canadian media. They work very hard and are ludicrously underpaid, so making sure they get proper recognition is really important to us. Meena’s piece is a great piece of reporting and tells a side of the Sri Lankan story that you likely haven’t heard enough about, so please give it a look.
