Dispatches from the Left
Did you miss us?
You may have noticed there were no hot takes in your inbox this morning! We’re very sorry about that! Over the summer, we have decided to move to a once-per-month newsletter so we can enjoy more of Saskatchewan’s hot mess weather. So keep your eyes peeled (gross) for your monthly Dispatches on June 11, July 9, and August 13. In the meantime, here are some articles we’ve published recently as well as recordings from two of the three Solutions Journalism workshops we held earlier this month.
From “What is Solutions Journalism” with Saima Desai, Kimberley Hartwig, and Sara Birrell:
