I worked as a reporter at the Leduc Repweekly newspaper from the start of June until the end of August 2017. The newsroom was small, but my audience was engaged. My writing and photography also served several municipalities, appearing in the Devon Dispatch, Beaumont News and several other small papers. I was worked to the bone, but I learned a lot in the process. Here are some of my favourite stories from the internship.
I previewed Citie Ballet’s third and final production of its 2016/2017 season for Vue Weeklytoday.
