Lauren Luchenski

Lauren began writing for the Journal’s Arts section in March and never fails to make an event, exhibition or festival that she’s asked to cover — no matter how last-minute it might be. Her genuine passion for art comes through in the well-written, descriptive articles she produces. Lauren is devoted and reliable, as she’s always happy to cover stories for Arts, often going out of her way to do so. Her enthusiastic attitude led to her receiving the well-deserved title of staff writer. We’re excited to see what else Lauren has in store for Arts this year.

Darren Major

Darren’s efforts in contributing to the Opinions section for issue 7 showed his strong commitment to ensuring his piece turned out well. He approached the Opinions Editor on his own accord, with all his ideas fully formed. Darren was asked to make extra changes and additions to the piece at the last minute. He never once complained or hesitated. He was very open to suggestions and edits and maintained a great attitude despite having to finish the piece in a short span of time.

Ryan Pardy

Ryan writes regularly for QJScience and has been an enthusiastic member of the Journal community. He initially contacted the Journal back in May and has since been proactive about generating story ideas, asking for feedback and accepting edits. He was a great help to the Lifestyle Launch event and his enthusiasm for his work shines through in his writing. Ryan has a way of making even complex scientific topics interesting and accessible to readers of all academic backgrounds.

Claudia Tsang

Claudia has been with the Journal since the beginning of the Lifestyle section and has written for nearly every issue since. Claudia is always on top of her deadlines and frequently takes the initiative to pitch her own story ideas and even take photos. Her writing is funny and engaging, lending each piece she writes a unique perspective. Claudia’s willingness to help went a long way to making the Lifestyle Launch event a success and her continued eagerness to write coupled with her lovely personality makes her one of our most valued contributors.
