I started Pigeon as a little creative communications agency. In 2020, I shifted it into an online portfolio for my journalism, personal writing and creative projects.
I’m a copywriter and journalist based in New Brunswick, Canada. One of my favourite subjects is art. My arts reporting has been recognized with a National Newspaper Award and multiple Atlantic Journalism Awards. In 2018, my long-form piece about Syrian newcomers in Saint John was nominated for a National Magazine Award.
Before going freelance, in 2016, I was the arts reporter for the New Brunswick Telegraph-Journal and, later, executive director of ArtsLink NB, a provincial organization for professional artists.
Along with print journalism, I also write for film and TV. I have written scripts for nationally-aired documentaries and international TV series. My work has been published in Canadian Art, Canadian Geographic, East Coast Living and The Maritime Edit.
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree (Anthropology) from McGill University, and a Graduate Diploma of Journalism from Concordia University. In 2014, I was named by 21 Inc. as one of New Brunswick’s emerging leaders for the 21st century. She lives in Rothesay.
I also make a living as a copywriter. If you need a hand with your business communications, visit me at katewallace.ca for all things related to copywriting and brand storytelling.
