Nora Connidis Boydell

Salt Audio Storytelling & Outreach Teaching Assistant

Dept. : Salt at MECA

Nora is an audio storyteller with a passion for hands-on field reporting. Her stories have led her up the Scottish highlands on a mountain bike, to the carpet of a library to talk with kids about literacy, and to the deck of a whale watch boat in the Atlantic. She has produced stories for Slate Studios, CBC Radio, Atlantic Public Media, WCAI, and other NPR member stations and podcasts. Last year, Nora developed a workshop and guest-lectured for journalism students at Northeastern University about developing their voice and writing for radio. She is currently launching an original podcast for the Institute for Health and Human Potential.

Nora is a proud Salt alum. She also has an honours degree in English from the University of Toronto, where she received awards for creative writing. Her work is equally informed by her experiences as an improv performer and instructor, a farm worker, and an HR professional.
