Journalist Katie Hyslop has spent their decade-plus career applying a social justice lens to the education, youth and housing issues they cover.
Born and (mostly) raised in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, Hyslop went west in 2008 to complete a masters of journalism at the University of British Columbia, and hasn't looked back since.
With The Tyee since 2010, Hyslop has written extensively on B.C. education, foster care, Indigenous issues, housing and poverty. They've appeared on CBC Radio, CKNW, News 1130, Global BC, Fairchild TV and Roundhouse Radio; were republished on Salon.com; and were (briefly) followed on Twitter by former The Simpsons executive consultant Brad Bird.
When not hunched over a laptop or riding their bike to an interview, Hyslop can be found adding to their growing horror comics collection, posting yet another picture of their cat to Facebook, or running after an errant hula hoop in the park.
