Meet our new Managing Editor

Hi Word and Colour readers,

I’m Caitrin Pilkington, and I’m Word and Colour’s new Managing Editor. That means I’ll be working on staffing, administration and marketing. I’m very much looking forward to getting started.

I’m a writer and editor working in Toronto — you can find my work in VICE, THIS
Magazine, the National Post and Halifax Magazine. I’ve previously worked with the
Ecology Action Centre in Nova Scotia and Banff Heritage Tourism to tackle things like marketing and membership.

I’m so excited to be working with such talented people — Editor in Chief Nailah King and former Managing Editor and founder Liam Lachance have been so welcoming and have so many good ideas for the future of this publication.

I was first drawn to this position by the core values of this publication, and I care deeply about upholding them. I’m passionate about promoting writers whose voices are so often not included in the literary world, especially IBPOC, LGBTQQIP2SAA, disabled and non-binary writers.

Over the next few months, we’ll be working on developing a new quarterly format for the magazine and other exciting developments. We look forward to receiving your work and sharing more written talent and artwork in the very near future.

You can always get in touch with me at
