WHO IS JEN SELK?
As a member of the media, Jen was published in a variety of newspapers and magazines including ION, Weekly Scoop, For Me, the Tyee, Vancouver View, Dose, the Vancouver Sun, the National Post, the Calgary Herald, the Regina Leader Post, Post City Magazines and the Ottawa Citizen. (Check out some clips if you feel you must.) She has been an expert speaker on CBC radio and Cosmo TV, and between 2008 and 2010, appeared regularly on MTV's Gemini-nominated After Show. Jen also sat for two years on the Board of Directors for the Western Magazine Awards Foundation and holds a SSHRC-funded Masters degree in English Literature from the University of Toronto.
These days, Jen's been trying to make a go of her online vintage shop: Will & Bequeath because, as it turns out, buying and selling junk is a lot more fun and interesting than you'd expect. More fun and interesting than being a crap journalist, anyway.
Jen lives in Toronto with her fish, Nathan, and her partner, also called Nathan.
P.S. 2009: Nathan the fish has passed away. Alas! But, guys, remember how funny it was when I had a husband and a fish with the same name? Comedy and confusion in one rad package! In memory of that happy time and in memory of Nathan the fish, may he rest in peace, I shall leave the above unchanged, though it is no longer accurate. Our new fish is called Bill.
P.P.S. 2012: Bill is dead too.
A message from Nathan: mope mope mope.
(Sorry. He doesn't really understand the internet.)
Hey dudes. Guess what? All my stuff is copyrighted. Automatically. Even if I hadn't said this. That's how it works. But here's something you might not know: If you send me communications, be they text, images, or other media, via comments on this or any other website I own, email, text, or even phone, I will consider said communications my personal property and may reproduce them, here, in full or in part, any damn time I feel like it. I may even reveal your identity (which includes your full name and IP address) to third parties via the Internet. I call this "TROLL BE GONE." If you're not a jerk, you probably have nothing to worry about.
