Emily’s Personal Favourites

Sometimes, you write something that speaks to you. Even the most self-critical person has those works they adore.

Here you’ll find my favourite curated articles I’ve had the pleasure to write for either Life on the Flatlands or elsewhere. I can’t always explain why I like what I do, so take a read, and you be the judge of your favourites. They might not be the best written, but they caught my eye or are something I liked writing for some reason. Sometimes a topic speaks to you…other times, you are just trying to get it all out.

Emily McKay

Growing up in small-town B.C. I’ve lived a varied life. Leaving Vancouver Island was the hardest choice I’ve ever made – but you can’t eat scenery! One day, I’ll go back. Until then, it’s life on the flatlands of Alberta for me.

My work is authentically me, I’ve been known by many names and many titles. My favourite being “Mom,” and my top favourite job title used to be the same, but in 2021 my favourite job title became “Writer.”

I am proud of my indigenous roots, and a proud Canadian.
