About

Michelle K Allan

Hello! My name is Michelle, and I'm a recent Queen's grad working as the lead local news reporter at Kingstonist.

During my studies, I worked at many campus media outlets. I was the head journalist at Inquire Publication, an Assistant Editor of Photography/Staff Writer at The Queen's Journal, Editor of The Undergraduate Review, and a Reporter/Sports Coordinator at CFRC 101.9.

Last summer I did a foreign reporting student program at the Reuters offices in Prague with Transitions Online, an online media organization covering politics and news of Central/Eastern Europe.

The previous summer I worked at The Beaverton, a Toronto-based satirical news publication. I was able to contribute both to the online publication and the TV show.

When not occupied by journalistic endeavours, I often work in photography and graphic design. I’ve done graphic design work for Supes Legit Productions which can be seen in the webseries #Interns. I’ve also held many photography jobs, including at The Queen's Journal and the Queen's Arts and Science Undergraduate Society.

If you’re interested in collaborating or hiring me for freelance work, I can be reached at contact@michelleallan.ca.
