In stores now!

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Publishing/writing/career stuff

Every February Ottawa Magazine publishes a special edition “interiors” edition which I read over to cover. This month’s issue is a particularly gorgeous, gloss fantastic and totally coffee-table quality publication.

I have an article about local designer Marion Lanktree in this issue. (Can we give a collective HOORAY for fun assignments?)

Pick up a copy and flip to page 51 and let me know what you think. :)

Marion is pictured on the front page of the Ottawa Magazine website. The photo is by a favourite local photographer of mine, Rémi Thériault. (Check out his blog for more of his work. So talented!)

Oh, I’ll have to pick up a copy! Congrats on your writing assignment. I had several articles published in Ottawa Life Magazine in 2002 – it felt great to see something I wrote published! The magazine looks great as of late, too!

Hi all

Just to clarify, we’re talking Ottawa Magazine here, sister magazine to Toronto Life and one of many publications of St Joseph Media…(not Ottawa Life Mag). The first issue of the year is the interiors-focussed issue that Andrea is referring to, and in which her story is featured. It’s available on newsstands across Ottawa for a full year, but a surefire place to find it is Brittons. OR … you can subscribe and save yourself hunting one down. #makelifeeasier

Dee … I work at Ottawa Magazine (hence my need to clarify!)

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
