Call for editors!

Can you believe we’ve only been around since September? It’s been an amazing year.

Unfortunately, about half of the folks who made that amazingness happen will be graduating next year, so we are looking to welcome some new editors and writers to The Talon team to continue the work we’ve been doing thus far.

First and foremost, we’re looking for folks to join the editorial collective who can help us continue to publish at least 2-3 articles per week by committing to some combination of the following:

  • Editing around 3-4 articles per month;
  • Writing or liaising on 1-2 article(s)/month;
  • Attending bi-weekly editorial meetings;
  • Event planning;
  • Taking lead on administrative tasks (e.g. responding to emails, coordinating the publishing schedule, etc.);
  • Helping with social media;
  • Bringing unique skills, interests, and experiences to the table.

Those joining the editorial collective should be prepared for a time commitment of approximately 8-10 hours per week.

If you’re interested in joining the editorial collective, please apply by either filling out this google form or preparing your responses in a word/google doc and submitting via email by April 30th. We especially encourage Indigenous people, people of colour, queer and trans folk, neurodiverse and/or folks with disabilities to apply.

Second, we are continuing to look for folks to contribute their skills and interests from outside the collective; that can mean writing articles, taking photos, or anything else you can imagine. We’d love for you to either get in touch via email or facebook, or to also submit the google form.

We’ll then be in touch with interested folks for future meetings, by approximately the first week of May!

If you have any questions, concerns, or feedback about this process, please contact us via email. We also encourage you to bring your questions to our Open Meeting this Tuesday, 6:30pm at room 214 at the SUB, where we’ll be talking in-person about the love and labour that went into The Talon this year, and what things might look like next year. The agenda for the event is available on the event page.
