I’m Anya Zoledziowski, a journalist splitting my time between CBC Edmonton and the world of freelancing. You can find my work, which focuses on race, gender, Indigenous issues, education and local news in The Globe and Mail, Discourse Media, CBC Indigenous, the Edmonton Journal, Indian Country Today, The Center For Public Integrity, StarMetro Calgary/The Toronto Star and Megaphone Magazine, among others. I also dabble in hip-hop journalism, which you can peep in Noisey, Discorder Magazine, Exclaim! and FLOOD Magazine. (If I’ve managed to pique your interest, you should check out my monthly Spotify playlists here.)
I earned a BA (Honors) in Political Science with a Polish Language minor from the University of Alberta, and I graduated top of my class with a Master of Journalism degree from the University of British Columbia. Shortly after graduation, I jet-set off to Phoenix, where I participated as a fellow for News21, a Carnegie-Knight and Walter Cronkite School national investigative project. For seven months, I investigated hate crimes targeting Indigenous women in Montana and North Dakota alongside a team of multimedia journalists. Find the finished product here.
Like every millennial, I live online and emphasize my vocal fry. Say hi, drop a line or follow me on Twitter.
