The Walrus Foundation is currently accepting applications for the six-month Walrus Editorial Fellowship Program, which begins November 6, 2017, and ends May 11, 2018.


The Walrus Editorial Fellowship Program—a pilot project funded by the Chawkers Foundation and other like-minded donors, and administered by the charitable, non-profit Walrus Foundation—trains young professionals in editorial work, to the rigorous standards of Canada’s celebrated magazine of long-form journalism, ideas, and culture. Editorial Fellows research story ideas with editors, and fact-check and proof the content of The Walrus in print and mobile 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.


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.

Investigative Journalism Intensive - scholarship available

Friday, 23 June 2017 14:02


In the age of alt-facts, deeply researched reporting is more crucial than ever to the viability of an informed citizenry and a healthy democracy. Investigative reporters craft the stories that form the heart of our public discourse. These stories require advanced technical skills, but over the past decade, data transparency laws have been empowering all writers to explore their ideas more fully than ever before.

Banff Centre is proud to host a five-day intensive on investigative journalism with an accompanying summit. This program teaches nonfiction writers and journalists to use investigative research techniques as they create compelling narratives.

Participants will also attend a summit entitled Journalism in the Age of Illiberalism. From October 20-21, writers and journalists will gather in Banff to discuss practical next steps in the critical conversation around media and democracy.
