Grace McGrenere

Features Writer

Grace McGrenere is a freelance journalist and content writer. She waved goodbye to her hometown London, Ontario, in 2016 to travel the long distance to Ottawa to pursue a Combined Honours degree in Journalism and Human Rights and Social Justice at Carleton University. She has stayed in Ottawa ever since. Her passion for storytelling originates from nights spent listening to bedtime stories told by her father. Grace’s work has been featured in Canadian Geographic, Ottawa Business Journal, National Post, The Feathertale Review, The Leveller, and The Charlatan. While studying at Carleton University, she co-hosted and produced two radio shows for CKCU FM. When Grace is not writing, you can find her skiing down the slopes in the winter (more like tumbling) or by the lake in the summer.
