COMMUNITY ISSUES JOURNALISM & SOME SATIRE

Freelance writing

I’m an independent investigative journalist on community issues. I also write other stuff — sometimes poetic, weird, or funny,… or just weird. It’s my own website, so I can literally say anything at all that I want right here!

BOOK IN DEVELOPMENT

My book will be released soon.

My book is scheduled to be released in January of 2023. It’s titled Your Consent Is Not Required: The Rise in Psychiatric Detentions, Forced Treatment and Abusive Guardianships. Please click here to learn more.

IN LOVING MEMORY

My sister took awesome landscape photographs.

My sister Karen Wipond dedicated much of her life to the Conservation Lands Program protecting high-value, sensitive habitat for fish and wildlife in British Columbia. And she was also a keen amateur landscape photographer. Her pictures explore and celebrate shapes and colours; they are poetic, they are political, and they show and create intimate relationships between natural landscapes and the people who view them. And doesn’t all writing ultimately seek to reveal the relationships between us and our natural world? So I use some my sister’s pictures to make this website look nicer. If you’d like to see more of her photos, please visit her Flickr site.
