H.G. Watson

H.G. Watson is a multimedia journalist currently based in Waterloo, Ontario. After a brief foray into studying law, she decided that she preferred filing stories to editors than factums to the court. Since then, she's held editorial positions at the Lance in Windsor and The Cord in Waterloo, where she's the Editor-in-Chief of the Cord Community Edition. She's also written freelance stories for a number of publications. When she's not covering the labour beat for rabble, she's reading a ton, biking around the GTA and trying to reduce her Netflix queue.
