Crystal Chan is a writer and editor.



My work has appeared on the CBC and in Reader's Digest and Maisonneuve in Canada, in Yankee and The Forward in the U.S., and in The Montreal Gazette, Nightlife, and Cult MTL in Montreal; I was also a film critic for the Montreal Mirror and Ioncinema. I've written for many other local, national, and international publications, including leading arts and culture magazines such as Sight & Sound.

I manage magazine and edit QWF Writes, a monthly essay series published by the Quebec Writers' Federation. Before that, I was Managing Editor of La Scena Musicale magazine and Program Coordinator of ELAN (English-Language Arts Network).

I've juried journalism awards and been asked to speak about writing and media. I can take photos to accompany my stories (sample photography).

I'm also hired by organizations and academics to manage publishing projects. I help with: writing, editing, research, strategy, website creation & management, layout & design, marketing, public relations, event planning, and translation. As a project manager, I find specialists and then oversee their progress. Je travaille en français aussi.
