Oh yeah, this thing still exists. Here’s some stuff I’ve done since last I posted here.
Fall 2012—Winter 2013
Returned to Victoria after my summer of Fringe-ing.
Got a contract job as Communications Assistant at the Victoria Film Festival.
Assisted Missie Peters in the creation of the 2013 Victoria Spoken Word Festival, as her right-hand woman aka Festival Administrator.
Stage managed a play called “That Face” at Victoria’s awesome community theatre Langham Court. Trial by fire!!!
All of the above wrapped up… and I moved to Winnipeg to live with my partner Aaron!
Got a contract job over the summer with the Winnipeg Folk Festival as Performer Services Assistant. Had the time of my life.
Volunteered at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival. It is maybe the best Fringe ever (apart from Victoria, OF COURSE).
Briefly returned to Victoria for Fringe as Front of House Manager for Wood Hall (2nd year in a row) with my rad tech Simon.
Did a ton of volunteering for the Winnipeg International Writers Festival (where Aaron works).
Started a mentorship with Charlene Diehl, the director of the Winnipeg International Writers Festival, through ACI’s Youth Mentorship Program.
The mentorship was for… the creation of the inaugural Winnipeg Spoken Word Festival, which I decided to found with Aaron, and for which I am the Festival Director. The festival is scheduled for June 2014.
Started working as Marketing Assistant at Signature Editions, a literary press based in Wolseley.
2014 (aka now)
Currently working at Signature Editions.
Alternately very excited about, or panicking about, the creation of the Winnipeg Spoken Word Festival.
This summer, I will be the Guest Producer of the Victoria Fringe Festival. VERY EXCITING!!!!! I absolutely cannot wait.
Aaron has an amazing year ahead of him, and I am very proud of all his achievements and the recognition his spoken word career is receiving. He has been admitted to the Banff Spoken Word Program, will be doing a show in the Winnipeg Fringe Festival, and will be featuring at shows all across the country. I get to look on and bask.
No idea what the fall will hold. But I don’t need to know. It will sort itself out.
For now? Onwards!
