I was founder and director of Rhetoric Magazine for 4 years, spanning March 2011 – March 2015.
In this time, we published four online magazines (which can be viewed on www.rhetoricmagazine.com), and held events in Kingston, Toronto, and Edinburgh. My roles included general organization, communicating with and selecting contributors, layout designs, content editing pieces submitted for publication, hiring an executive team, as well as creating and running the website. Doing this work has been the most profound learning experience in my life so far. Throughout my time working with Rhetoric Magazine, I studied and implemented knowledge of web design and administration, as well as design and editing. Working with writers one-on-one and on their works gave me such deep satisfaction and joy. It grew to be a very large project, encompassing 70 contributors in 16 different countries.
