We're hiring associate editors

We are currently seeking applications to fill vacancies for our associate editorial positions for the summer semester and beyond. These positions are not paid hourly, but do receive monthly stipends in recognition of their work.

Two points before we continue!

1. You DON’T need to be part of our staff to write/ illustrate/ take photos for The Runner. You can do that throughout the publishing year, and we will still pay you for it. Just come to our story meetings and talk to us to get involved.

2. Even if you don’t have enough experience, there may be positions that only require a willingness to learn.

To apply please include a cover letter (stating which position(s) you are interested in), a resume and two writing samples, for editing and writing positions); please send photos for the photo editor position or illustrations/art for the art director position with your application. Applications and inquiries should be emailed to editor@runnermag.ca.

***All stipends and work responsibilities are cut to 60% during the summer months***
