About

Michelle K Allan

My name is Michelle and I’m a GTA based journalist. I am currently finishing my last semester at Queen’s University, and will have earned a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) with a major in English Literature by December 2018.

During my studies at Queen's, I have worked at many campus media outlets. I am currently the Head Journalist for Inquire Publication, and my previous positions have included Assistant Editor of Photography/Staff Writer at The Queen's Journal, Editor of The Undergraduate Review, and Reporter and Sports Coordinator at CFRC 101.9.

This 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.

I also found time during my undergrad to contribute to rewriting the university’s Sexual Violence Policy, host the Queen's Poetry Slam, and complete a study abroad program in Elizabethan Shakespeare and British Studies at the Bader International Study Centre in Great Britain.

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 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.
