- An Aussie in Edmonton - Meg McCready
The day the temperature reached an inconceivable -36 C, I stayed in bed and missed class. (They say only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun. I say only mad Canadians go out in those temperatures.) Luckily for my studies, that only happened once during the first winter.

- Purple City S'mores - Lisa Bromley
The security guards stopped by once or twice to see what exactly it was that we were up to. Each time we smiled sweetly and offered them a marshmallow, and each time they politely declined.

This is a story of similarities and differences; connection and disconnect; familiarity and fear of the unknown.

My bicycle has given me a new lease on life in Edmonton now that I leave the car key at home when I go out to visit my favourite haunts.

Edmonton allowed me to do all kinds of crazy things like being a dung beetle and hanging off the side of the National Bank Building downtown. And then I had this idea of turning myself into The Human Fountain.

Last summer I was a green shack leader, a job aptly named after the wobbly, green-coloured sheds that house craft and sports supplies in certain playgrounds throughout Edmonton.
- Opera Boot Camp - Kim Mattice-Wanat
