Each semester, Spacing offers students the opportunity to support Spacing’s writers, editors, and contributors with real-world experience from within the magazine and city-building industries. Job placements usually last for four months and offer flexible schedules to suit your education and employment limitations. Working with Spacing is best suited for highly-motivated and organized people who need a minimum of supervision. All positions are unpaid.
PLEASE NOTE: While Spacing’s HQ is based in Toronto, we can work with students based in other cities including Vancouver, Montreal, Ottawa, Halifax, and other large Canadian urban centres.
You will write short articles for the magazine and provide fact-checking and editing support. This is a good position for journalism students or students focused on city-building (architecture, planning, governance, urban studies) looking to add writing to their portfolio.
Web editor assistant:
As Spacing’s national presence grows we have new demands to support our writers in far-off locales. The assistant web editor position supports our editor and city editors with editorial planning, content editing, and writing. Very well suited for those seeking semester-long placements and a need to beef up their editing portfolio.
Photo and/or design assistant:
If you have a passion for cities, photography, and/or design and want your work to be seen by a sizable audience, then we may be a good fit for you.
Deadline for this semester: Sunday, January 20th
Deadline for summer placement: Friday, March 15th.
What to send: Pass along a resumé and cover letter and two samples of writing in PDF format (links to web portfolio is also acceptable). For photo/design applications: pass along a cover letter touting your skills and a link to your work or send low-resolution PDFs.
