Publication: The Walrus!

Seems about right.

Super excited to say that I have a piece in The Walrus this month – it’s called Girls On Ice, and it’s about ringette, Canada’s other ice sport. Above is a photo of me posing (oddly giddily) for a photo at age 14, when I was playing on an Etobicoke-Burlington-Mississauga combination team. In total, I played ringette for 10 years, switched to hockey in high school, and then dropped ringette when I realised that skating seven days a week was going to put a crimp in the social ins and outs of being a teenager.

You can check out the piece by clicking on Nolan Pelletier‘s wonderful illustration below. (And funnily enough, this is the second time he’s illustrated one of my pieces – the first was two years ago, in The Globe and Mail!)
