Welcome to The Rigmarole.

I'm so glad you’re here!

About Me

I live in Alberta, Canada, with my partner, my daughter, two dogs, three cats, and a few dozen chickens.

I’ve been a writer for over twenty years, including a regular column for The Guardian and my book, All You Need is Less.

If you'd like to hire me for writing or editing projects, please contact me at MadeleineSix (at) gmail (dot) com.

About The Rigmarole

I started this newsletter in 2023 and typically publish one post a week.

If you like well-written musings about farm life, parenting, relationships, culture, books, and chickens, you’re in the right place.

If you don’t like reading about any of those things, give it a try anyway. I might surprise you.

This newsletter is reader-supported, but if you are experiencing financial difficulty and a paid subscription isn't in your budget, please contact me and I will provide one for you, free of charge.
