Big news for Understorey Magazine!
We are now in partnership with the Alexa McDonough Institute (AMI) for Women, Gender and Social Justice at Mount Saint Vincent University in Halifax.
AMI, chaired by Susan Brigham, is a hub of feminist energy, action and research. Understorey and AMI share a mandate of empowerment through self-expression and sharing of ideas, experiences and stories.
We look forward to this exciting chapter of the magazine. Stay tuned for details of our new editorial board and creative direction!
