The Walrus Foundation is not currently accepting applications for the six-month Walrus Editorial Fellowship Program. The application process for the summer 2018 Fellowship will open again in March 2018, with a program start date in early May.
The Walrus Editorial Fellowship Program trains young professionals in editorial work, to the rigorous standards of Canada’s celebrated magazine of long-form journalism, ideas, and culture. Walrus Editorial Fellows research story ideas with editors, and fact-check and proof the content of The Walrus in print and digital editions. Additional “desk assignments” include reviewing unsolicited submissions; monitoring and compiling web comments, tweets, and letters to the editor; gathering biographical information for the Contributors page; and assisting the online and tablet editors with digital and expanded content.
Walrus Editorial Fellows also have access to training seminars led by editors and staff of the Walrus Foundation, in topics ranging from copy editing and pitching to circulation and non-profit development. A full-time fellowship pays $400 per week and lasts six months.
To apply, please send a cover letter, your resumé, and two letters of reference to firstname.lastname@example.org by 6 p.m. ET on Friday, October 6.
