The Walrus Editorial Fellowship Program

The applications for the 2020 Editorial Fellowships are now closed, thank you to everyone who applied.

The Walrus provokes new thinking and sparks conversation on matters vital to Canadians. As a registered charity, we publish independent, fact-based journalism, produce national, ideas-focused events, and train emerging professionals in publishing and nonprofit management. The Walrus is invested in the idea that a healthy society relies on informed citizens

Editorial fellows’ primary training is in fact-checking the journalism The Walrus publishes in print and online. Fellows also have the opportunity to attend story meetings, contribute to editorial planning sessions, and shadow-edit articles. They will have access to training seminars led by editors and staff of The Walrus on topics ranging from copy editing and long-form editing to circulation and nonprofit management. In addition to their journalism training, editorial fellows have the opportunity to participate in non-editorial aspects of the organization, such as online events.
