Spacing Magazine Internship
Spacing Magazine is willing to host a highly motivated student intern to produce articles for publication.
Brief description of organization:
Spacing is one of the most unique magazines on Canadian newsstands. The magazine uncovers the joys, obstacles and politics of Canada’s big cities by cutting through the cynicism that often pervades any discussion about urban issues. Spacing pushes readers to think critically about how they can shape the public spaces that surround their everyday lives. Spacing.ca is home to regular features, opinion writing, and podcasts. Since 2016, Spacing has published eight books on a range of local topics.
Description of placement:
During the course of the internship, the student would research and write on topics pertinent to Spacing’s mandate. The editor is open to ideas, but topics of interest include the missing-middle, housing, the suburbs, modernism, urbanism, and heritage.
The ideal candidate would come prepared with ideas for articles, and would produce a total of three articles for publication, under the guidance of one or two of Spacing’s editors. *Please include potential ideas for articles in your application.
If the student has experience with podcasting, there is the possibility that they could contribute to one of Spacing’s podcasts.
Timing or hours of placement: Hours per week can be flexible, and would be divided up across the production of the three articles (up to a maximum of 120 hours).
