Stories from there and here


This site features a few first-person non-fiction and travel stories from Sean Kelly, a consultant, long-time non-profit sector professional, and dabbler of words & images based in Nova Scotia/Mi’kma’ki.

Sean is strategic consultant in climate change, environment, and social equity. In his time in communications, he was published in Outpost, Verge, Saltscapes, New Internationalist, The Globe & Mail, Destinations and Natural Life. He was the editor of the Sustainable Times, a Canadian magazine on environment and global development issues, published by Cuso International.

He also edited the book Possible Worlds: A Reader on International Development, and was a contributing writer to the books Women Worldwide (McGraw-Hill) and A World That Works (Bootstrap Press).

Sean was a co-winner of a National Magazine Award (for lifestyle writing in Outpost magazine’s Travel for Good issue), and was a Malahat Literary Award finalist in creative non-fiction for his story A Squid Ink Sky.
