Welcome to the (r)ave!
This website started out as the personal rants and ravings of me, Averie MacDonald. Since its creation in 2010, it has undergone many changes, but the purpose remains the same. The (r)ave is where I put my stamp on the Internet and express who I am, and what I have to offer.
I’m a recent graduate of Carleton University’s School of Journalism. Now I’m researching children’s relationships with “the news” as an M.A. candidate at the University of Toronto. As a writer, I specialize in social affairs and have experience on the children’s issues beat. I was previously a staff-member at WIGUP.tv, an educational news website for Canadian children. In my spare time, I’m a Canadian arts and culture fanatic and enjoy reviewing theatre, film and music.
If you head to my blog page, you’ll get my personal musings on all sorts of topics– sometimes journalism-related, sometimes not.
To learn about my professional side, check out my online portfolio for work samples and my current CV.
Feel free to contact me with comments, questions, and/or any other feedback. This website is a constant work in progress, so let me know what you think!
Read and Enjoy!
