 St. Joseph Media has launched a memorial fund with Carleton University to honour Anne Kingston, who passed away in February of this year after a battle with cancer. Kingston was a senior writer and columnist at Maclean’s magazine. Prior to her 14 years at Maclean’s, she also held senior writing and editorial positions at The Globe and Mail, the National Post and Saturday Night.

To honour her legacy, The Anne Kingston Memorial Fund will provide opportunities to students at Carleton’s School of Journalism to contribute to the They Were Loved project.

This collaboration between Maclean’s, the Carleton School of Journalism and other journalism schools across the country, will pay tribute to every person who has, and will, pass away from Covid-19. The selected students will work directly with Katherine Laidlaw, Journalist in Residence, as digital editors, gaining invaluable experience to bolster their journalistic pursuits and careers.

Kingston won several journalism awards during her career and last year she was shortlisted for the 2019 Landsberg Award, an annual prize awarded by the Canadian Journalism Federation (CJF) in association with the Canadian Women’s Foundation, to a journalist whose “exceptional research, analysis and presentation through a gender lens” provides “greater profile to women’s’ equality issues.”
