Hi G! readers! I wanted to take a second to introduce you to the new intern at G!… me!
My name is Angela and I’m coming to you from the University of King’s College in Halifax. But don’t let that fool you, I’m a born and bred P.E.Islander. Like many islanders, I grew up in a Guardian-reading family. When I heard about a subsidiary infotainment magazine of the newspaper many hold dear, I couldn’t wait to get my bid in for a spot on the team. Our editor, Meredith, decided I would be a good fit for readers like you and the rest is history!
P.E.I. has always been a special place and a world of its own in many ways. Leaving the house may be more difficult without running into someone I know and introductions may take a bit longer because of friendly curiosity about my family tree, but having the opportunity to come home and write in a place I love so much has been a great experience.
I’ve been shadowing Meredith for a little over a week and have been able to experience the final production stages of the current issue featuring Katie McGarry and the new May Run Music Festival. Reading about local talent, game changers and hilarious anecdotes this province has to offer has reinvigorated my dedication to telling the stories of people who matter the most on our island – you!
I’m especially excited to sit in with you guys on the upcoming issue to celebrate the 5th anniversary of G! And the best part? My time here just happens to coincide with melting snow, the warming sun and summer fun! I truly believe, no matter the subject matter, a writer needs to have passion driving their stories. I can assure you I will give you nothing less in my time with the G! crew!
Photographer Rachel Peters has made a career out of capturing memories, and a life creating some pretty amazing ones.

The seasons are in transition, and before long, it will be wedding season on P.E.I. Yes, in mere weeks, an influx of happy and in-love couples will be exchanging vows in the presence of friends and family in various picturesque locations across the Island.
And capturing many of these couples’ special moments will be Rachel Peters, the award-winning wedding photographer from North Rustico with the mega watt smile and heart to match.

Six-pack abs are just a workout away. Or not.
Working out is not like riding a bike. Working out is like knife juggling – you can’t just give it a whirl every ten years and expect not to induce bodily harm.
I had moved and started a new job all at once so for the first month and a half I didn’t Read more »
