A journalist with experience freelancing for one of Canada’s largest newspapers is the newest staff writer for the Anglican Journal.

Sean Frankling officially joined the Journal team on Jan. 4, bringing experience in both print and digital media. A graduate of Carleton University’s journalism program, Frankling has written numerous articles for the Toronto Star since 2020. He previously wrote scripts for WatchMojo, one of Canada’s largest YouTube channels; handled communications and social media for non-profit ABC Life Literacy Canada and hosted a biweekly podcast as his own creative project.

Frankling is also a member of Little Trinity Anglican Church in Toronto.

“I’ve been going to an Anglican church since I was baptized at one as an infant,” Frankling says. “The purpose of journalism is to serve communities. This is a community I’m a part of, and I’m happy to have the opportunity to serve it.”

Frankling replaces former staff writer Tali Folkins, who was named editor in October 2021.
