Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION

Julie Carl

Associate Editor Engagement

Julie Carl’s mother begged her not to go to journalism school as it is well known only losers go to journalism school and she didn’t think she could bear the shame of it.

But there are some things you can’t escape, so after earning a perfectly nice English degree from the University of Guelph, Julie started working at community newspapers around southern Ontario.

Eventually, she found her way to the London Free Press, where she worked as a reporter, copy editor, columnist and city editor before launching herself into the cyber world as content editor of the Now Network.

Lured back into print, she became managing editor of the Valley Today in Nova Scotia’s Annapolis Valley, then the editorial page editor of the Daily Gleaner in Fredericton, New Brunswick before landing as deputy editor at the Winnipeg Free Press in 2008.

Along the way she has garnered two National Newspaper Award nominations, two Michener Award citations, a gaggle of Ontario Newspaper Awards, three Atlantic Journalism Awards and a spot on the winning team of the fourth annual Brant County Literacy Council Spelling Bee, for which she was awarded a very nice bath sponge with a loofah on one side.
