Angela Long

Angela Long is a freelance journalist and multi-genre writer. Her work has appeared in numerous publications, including The Globe and Mail, Utne Reader, and Poetry Ireland Review. She has travelled widely – collecting stories, working, and volunteering – from the Indian Himalayas to the rainforests of Central America, to the farmers’ fields of Basque Country. In 2018, she drove across Canada visiting rural media outlets for an upcoming book about the power of local news. She has written about living off-grid (after her own three-year experience on Haida Gwaii), Indigenous water issues, and astrophysics. She has profiled famous artists, volunteer doctors, and war correspondents. Her work has been anthologized, and she’s the author of two books, Observations from Off the Grid (2010) and Every Day We Disappear (2018). While she calls Toronto home, she lives part-time in Galicia, Spain, where she cares for a growing number of abandoned cats.
