The North American School of Outdoor Writing
Well Roger, here it is 2014; where have the years gone? It’s amazing how quickly life moves along, but at the same time how much living we can get in if we choose. One of the best things I ever did though was take the time to take your course, as the skills I learned there have opened up so many interesting doors for me.
Along with my regular gig as a columnist for Alberta Outdoorsmen and the Alberta Trapper magazine I’ve had the pleasure of working along with some of the best writers in Wildlife cinematography in the world. Through our company, Compass Media Inc, I’ve collaborated with folks from National Geographic, The Nature of Things, CBC, & the BBC, amongst others. I’ve also been able to utilize the skills I learned under your tutelage to suport conservation causes I’m passionate about. Using those skills has allowed me to work with the communication departments of organizations like the Alberta Conservation Association and the Rocky Mountain Wilderness Society to effectively communicate our message.
The world is becoming a digitial landscape Roger but there will never be an on-line replacement for the guidance and mentorship you’ve provided me over the years. Thanks.
