Check out Checkerspot magazine

I have a story in the Fall/Winter 2008 issue of Checkerspot magazine, which came out earlier this week. If you aren’t familiar with this biannual magazine, you shouldn’t feel too out of the loop: Checkerspot is relatively new, having made its debut in August 2007. It’s published by the Canadian Wildlife Federation and is focused on engaging people in the fight against climate change. It’s a great read, and what’s even better is that you can subscribe for free!

My piece is a words-and-pictures feature about artists addressing climate change in their work. Photo editor Margaret Williamson came up with a fantastic collection of different types of art from all over the world, and then it was my job to write up an introduction and captions for each of the pieces. I’m really pleased with how the feature turned out and was thrilled with the opportunity to write about art and get paid for it, which doesn’t happen as often as I’d like!
