Jeremy Reay Editor-in-Chief & Content Developer As Quarter Section Collective founder, Jeremy sought to find a space for young, progressive Canadians to share their stories.  With a background in Political Science and Human Geography, Jeremy has both a fervour for discussing social justice issues and a compulsion to wander the globe whenever possible.  When he's not indulging in his guilty pleasure of 90s Britpop or searching for the freshest caffeine hotspot, Jeremy works as a Fundraising & Development Coordinator at an international charitable organization in Vancouver.  He hopes that Quarter Section Collective and its contributors inspire you to innovate, explore the world and admire the talents of the imaginative minds that surround you.  Instagram: jeremyreay Twitter: jeremyreay

Rosalee Averin Managing Editor Bringing years of writing and editing experience to the Quarter Section Collective table (via a couple degrees in English literature), Rosalee is thrilled to help create a space for young Canadians to express their creative, critical, socially conscious selves. She offers her passion for all things intersectionally feminist, Black womanist, and mindfully socially just through her role as Managing Editor at Quarter Section.  Though she loves the editing bit most of all, if you keep your eyes peeled you may see an essay or two here and there, and maybe a book review or a poem hiding in a dark corner once in awhile. Her literary passions for African Diasporic theories and fictions still heavily inform her work, both fiction and non. During the day (and often bits of the evenings and weekends) she works to develop and deliver workshops and educational opportunities about social justice and inclusive practice to the campus community at Calgary's MRU, as well as the broader Calgary community.  When she's not reading, writing, editing, teaching people to be woke, or learning how to get more woke herself—since it's a process—she's probably off travelling somewhere with limited WiFi, practicing Ashtanga vinyasa yoga, making things out of wood, and/or listening to whatever latest vinyl purchase she shouldn't have made.
