Meet the Nominees for Best New Magazine Writer: Catherine McIntyre

The 37th annual National Magazine Awards are coming up on Friday June 6. One of the most special awards to be presented at the gala will be the honour of Canada’s Best New Magazine Writer, an award sponsored by the Readers’s Digest Foundation. This year there are 3 finalists, and recently we chatted with each of them to get to know the person behind the pen.

Our third nominee is Catherine McIntyre, author of “Clusterf*ck” (THIS Magazine).

NMAF: What is something about yourself that others would be surprised to know?

Catherine: Most of my jobs in the past have been physically labour intensive. I was essentially reared in a vineyard where I built up a tolerance for hard physical work (and a palate for wine). During my months off in university, I planted trees in BC and Alberta and I spent another summer farming in France. Working those jobs meant I spent a lot of time alone. Farm work and especially tree planting can be very solitary; they offer copious time and space, which for me is important for nurturing story ideas.

NMAF: When it came to writing your piece, did you have any sources of inspiration?

Catherine: Curiosity and a bit of fear originally drove me to this story. Growing up around farm country in Nova Scotia, I was exposed to lots of chemicals. I had no idea what kind of harm this exposure was causing long-term, so I started digging for disease rates in Nova Scotian farming communities. I came across Inka Milewski’s study on disease patterns throughout New Brunswick. She found that rates of certain cancers were high depending on the community in question, and she had evidence linking specific types of cancer to specific industries.

This sounded like a huge breakthrough to me: if we know what’s causing cancer, we can change our behaviours and prevent the disease. But no one was talking about this—not the local media, not community mayors—and I quickly realized why that was: drawing attention to Milewski’s findings would worry the public and may even encourage people to petition for change. But the kind of changes necessary to deal with the high rates of cancer would require a total overhaul of New Brunswick’s industries and economy. That’s why the province was ignoring Milewkski and that’s why I had to tell this story. Muzzling scientists like this really irks me. I don’t think people should be kept in the dark, especially when it comes to their health.

NMAF: What are your career goals?

Catherine: At this stage in my career I feel like I have to be flexible, which is the self-assuring way of saying “I’ll take what I can get.” Ultimately, I just want to tell good stories. I want to write feature articles and when the right idea comes around, I’d love to write a book. This is a tough industry, though, and I realize you have to pay your dues before landing a full-time feature writing gig that sustains your lifestyle. For that reason I often flit back and forth between pursuing writing and becoming a farmer and wine-maker. But for now, my sights are set on writing and getting published as much as possible. The business side of magazines has always appealed to me as well, and in the fall, I plan on going back to school to dabble in magazine and web publishing.

NMAF: How did you feel about being an NMA nominee?

Catherine: I was not expecting an NMA nomination. I was obviously thrilled to be nominated, but part of me felt like an imposter. I was fresh out of university when I wrote the article and it was the first feature story I’d ever published. An NMA had not crossed my mind—not for this one. Am I even qualified? The nomination was certainly encouraging though. I’m new to this magazine thing and it’s sometimes difficult to imagine how I’ll ever make a living at it. Being recognized for my work was a reminder that maybe I shouldn’t abandon writing just yet.  

NMAF: What advice do you have for up-and-coming magazine writers?

Catherine: Write all the time. Even if you don’t have an idea worth publishing, write for yourself every day. Take any event with some sort of conflict and give it a beginning, middle, and end. Develop a character, sketch some scenes, and there—you’ve got a story. It’s good practice and you’ll start seeing there are stories everywhere. When you get an idea you think is interesting or important, dive into it. Research, make calls, and then pitch your story to a magazine, because if you don’t someone else will.    

This interview was edited for content. Special thanks to Nadya Domingo for conducting the interview.

You can read the full text of Catherine McIntyre’s nominated story along with all of the National Magazine Awards nominees at magazine-award.com. Follow her on Twitter @CappyMc.

Here’s what this year’s NMA jury said about “Clusterf*ck”:

In Clusterf*ck, Catherine McIntyre dares to tackle a complex and underreported issue, digging into New Brunswick’s data on cancer clusters and correlating illness with areas of heavy industry. In every way a powerful feature—great sources, revealing scenes, vivid details—the work displays a principled grasp of the fundamentals of investigative reporting. Her piece, like the best journalism, has the potential to effect change.

We’ll find out who wins the award for Best New Magazine Writer at the 37th annual National Magazine Awards, Friday June 6. Tickets.

Meet the Nominees for Best New Magazine Writer: Liz Windhorst Harmer

The 37th annual National Magazine Awards are coming up on Friday June 6. One of the most special awards to be presented at the gala will be the honour of Canada’s Best New Magazine Writer, an award sponsored by the Readers’s Digest Foundation. This year there are 3 finalists, and recently we chatted with each of them to get to know the person behind the pen.

Our second nominee is Liz Windhorst Harmer, author of “Pain: A Brief History of My Intensity” (The New Quarterly).

NMAF: What is something about yourself that others would be surprised to know?

Liz: I’m always surprised by what surprises people about me. Sometimes people are surprised when they find out that I’ve been married for more than ten years. Another thing that seems to surprise people is that I like the pain of giving birth, which is something I explored in my nominated piece. I can also be very credulous—I believed in mermaids for too long, for example.

NMAF: When it came to writing your piece, did you have any sources of inspiration?

Liz: My piece explores different kinds of pain I have found myself seeking or choosing: CrossFit, childbirth, and fasting. I am inspired by the possibility for the transcendent in the everyday. The phrase “pain is weakness leaving the body” was the explicit catalyst for my essay.

NMAF: What are your career goals?

Liz: I’d like to write as much as possible, in as many ways as possible, as well as I can. I hope to be a published novelist and to continue to publish nonfiction.

NMAF: How did you feel about being an NMA nominee?

Liz: Overwhelmed with excitement. Also proud.

NMAF: What advice do you have to up-and-coming magazine writers?

Liz: Grace Paley’s advice to write what you don’t know about what you know is a good rule for writing nonfiction. Also: no idea is too small. Work hard on your craft—be greedy for good advice and good editing.

This interview was edited for content. Special thanks to Nadya Domingo for conducting the interview.

You can read the full text of Liz Windhorst Harmer’s nominated story along with all of the National Magazine Awards nominees at magazine-award.com. Follow her on Twitter @LizHarmer.

Here’s what this year’s NMA jury said about “Pain”:

In Pain, Liz Windhorst Harmer explores pushing her body to extremes of suffering—from intense exercise and natural childbirth to the passion of religious belief. In a starkly original voice, and with uncommon ferocity and grace, she opens herself up completely and compels the readers to return the favour. Covering a difficult and serious subject, she has crafted an essay unique in conception, construction and articulation.

We’ll find out who wins the award for Best New Magazine Writer at the 37th annual National Magazine Awards, Friday June 6. Tickets.

Meet the Nominees for Best New Magazine Writer: Suzannah Showler

The 37th annual National Magazine Awards are coming up on Friday June 6. One of the most special awards to be presented at the gala will be the honour of Canada’s Best New Magazine Writer, an award sponsored by the Readers’s Digest Foundation. This year there are 3 finalists, and recently we chatted with each of them to get to know the person behind the pen.

Our first nominee is Suzannah Showler, author of “On the Trail of Ignored Beasts” (Maisonneuve).

NMAF: What is something about yourself that others would be surprised to know?

Suzannah: My brain can’t distinguish between the number 5 and a capital letter B. 5ut I’m working on it.

NMAF: When it came to writing your piece, did you have any sources of inspiration? 

Suzannah: I was mostly inspired by the topic itself. I find cryptozoology endlessly fascinating. While I was preparing to write the piece, I became increasingly inspired, too, by the particular cryptozoologists I met. These are people doing their best to apply scientific skepticism to an activity that’s fundamentally motivated by what could be called faith. There’s a fine line between intellectual flexibility and out-and-out madness, of course, and there were times writing this piece when I wasn’t sure which side of that line I was reporting from. But on the whole, I found it genuinely inspiring to meet people living their lives with such imagination, and perseverance, and hope.

NMAF: What are your career goals? 

Suzannah: I’ll probably never shake my poetry-writing habit, but I’d love to try my hand at writing something longer in prose. Whether I can actually make that happen and whether that prose would detail true or untrue things remain to be seen.

NMAF: How did you feel about being an NMA nominee?

Suzannah: Very thrilled, obviously!

NMAF: What advice do you have to up-and-coming magazine writers?

Suzannah: I’m more or less a crossover from the literary side, which is one way people land in long-form magazine writing, but it’s maybe not the most efficient route. I would never tell someone: go and write poetry, mostly, and kind of dabble in short nonfiction until someone lets you try something longer. My personal experience doesn’t lend itself to amazing advice.

This interview was edited for content. Special thanks to Nadya Domingo for conducting the interview.

You can read the full text of Suzannah Showler’s nominated story along with all of the National Magazine Awards nominees at magazine-award.com. Follow her on Twitter @ZanShow.

Here’s what this year’s NMA jury said about “On the Trail of Ignored Beasts”:

In On the Trail of Ignored Beasts, Suzannah Showler hunts creatures stranger than sasquatches: the cryptozoologists who love them. Her reporting is strong, empathetic and insightful; urging readers past the wacky subject matter to consider the deeper reasons some of us just need to believe. She presents her subjects respectfully and thoughtfully, and the result is a poetic work of narrative non-fiction.

Off the Page, with Sierra Skye Gemma

Off the Page appears regularly on the Magazine Awards blog. Today we catch up with Sierra Skye Gemma, winner of the 2012 National Magazine Award for Best New Magazine Writer.

NMAF: Earlier this year you won the National Magazine Award for Best New Magazine Writer for a story called “The Wrong Way” (The New Quarterly), a personal essay and critical meditation on the stages of grief. Tell us a bit about how you developed this story and why you decided to submit it in the annual non-fiction writing competition from TNQ?

Sierra: The Wrong Way came out of an assignment in a Creative Non-fiction course with Andreas Schroeder. I had never written a personal essay before and when I started I wasn’t even sure what I wanted to say. Not exactly, anyway. I looked up Kübler-Ross’s Five Stages of Grief because I thought it would explain my experiences. I thought I could structure my essay according to the stages, but I realized that Kübler-Ross’s theory didn’t apply to my life at all. My essay then developed as a sort of antagonistic call-and-response with conventional grief theories.

I sat and wrote it in two sittings, straight through from beginning to end. I didn’t move things around after that and I barely edited it. That said, I had bits and pieces of it already written. Little vignettes that I hadn’t known what to do with before, like the story of buying my son the fish and aquatic frog. I had also taken extensive notes when my sister died and I wrote down lots of dialogue. Maybe that sounds weird; maybe not, if you’re a writer. But what do you do with a short “scene” between siblings that, when read on its own, seems to make light of the death of another sibling? Well, I guess you build an elaborate home in which it can live. The Wrong Way was that home for many of my disjointed experiences with grief.

I submitted the essay to The New Quarterly’s Edna Staebler Personal Essay Contest because Andreas Schroeder told me to submit it to a contest (and not through the slush pile of regular submissions); he thought the essay was good enough to win. The New Quarterly’s personal essay contest seemed like the obvious choice. The lesson here? Always listen to Andreas Schroeder.  Continue reading
