Kim Hart Macneill

Writer. Editor. Cat wrangler.

I’m a magazine editor and freelance journalist who writes about about beer, business, and the goings on in Halifax Regional Municipality from arts to politics.

My byline appears in Atlantic Business Magazine, Maclean’s, The Philanthropist, Report on Business, and Quill and Quire, to name a few. I’m also the editor of East Coast Living magazine and write a monthly beer column for Halifax Magazine.

I am a Kenneth R. Wilson Award winner and received an honourable mention at the National Journalism Awards.

I studied journalism at the University of King’s College in Halifax, and am ecstatic to be back as an instructor in the same program. I’m also completing my Master of Fine Arts in creative non-fiction at King’s. In conjunction with my masters, I’m writing a book about the 1926 Toronto Stork Derby.

In the past, I was editor of Chamber Vision (for the Moncton Chamber of Commerce) and Atlantic Books Today, and project manager on tourism guides for the province of New Brunswick and the city of Moncton.

I’m open to taking on non-journalism gigs including freelance manuscript editing and commercial writing.

In my spare time I enjoy home brewing, knitting, vegetable gardening, and pretty much any hobby that would have been considered “women’s work” in 1820.
