Publications in May 2021
It has been quite a busy month for the Citizen’s Journal! With spring lifting our spirits and summer right around the corner, it seems that our journalists have found inspiration at every turn.
In case you missed them:
- Recaps of the training session on Urban Indigenous Issues hosted by the CJE with special guest Nakuset, executive director of the Native Women’s Shelter of Montreal. Two journalists, Renee Corbiere and Muna Al-Mufti, share their experience as attendees, which can be read here and here.
- The Journal is always open to submissions from residents and friends of Peter-McGill wishing to highlight events taking place in our community. Have something in mind? You can reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and Viviane will be delighted to hear from you!
- Two visual submissions, which we love for their unique contribution! First, you can take a look at the mutli-media compilation from the members of Innovation Youth’s Connections group, describing their first day of activities. Second, Jessie Ye provides us with a visual overview of the opening day of the Seed to Table program, an exciting start to the growing season!
- An acrostic poem from our prolific journalist Philippe Finès, saluting the simultaneous arrivals of springtime and the COVID-19 vaccine (I may or may not have shed a tear of joy when reading this one!).
Remember that the Journal accepts contributions in all shapes and sizes: written articles, visual arts, photography, podcasts… there is something for everyone! Share your creativity with us!
Wishing you all a sunny month of June,
Publications Intern, Citizen’s Journal
