Refreshing the magazine, that’s what is happening. A slightly new look, a juggling of the masthead, some new faces. This time it’s a new yet familiar face. Julie Trimingham has been associated with the magazine since Rob Gray featured her film beauty crowds me in NC at the Movies in the November, 2011, issue (see link below). More recently, she has been writing a series of essays for NC at the Movies (the third, and final, essay will come at the end of the current issue). She’s a novelist, filmmaker, essayist, social activist and a lovely, lovely writer (as I am sure you have all recognized by now). Now she’s joining up as a Special Correspondent to write for us regularly, to help change the blend and the brand in new and exciting ways.
Julie Trimingham was born in Montreal and raised semi-nomadically. She trained as a painter at Yale University and as a director at the Canadian Film Centre in Toronto. Her film work has screened at festivals and been broadcast internationally, and has won or been nominated for a number of awards. Julie taught screenwriting at the Vancouver Film School for several years; she has since focused exclusively on writing fiction. Her online journal, Notes from Elsewhere, features reportage from places real and imagined. Her first novel, Mockingbird, was published in 2013.
