Our democ­racy de­pends on a well-in­formed pub­lic.

The Walrus - - WARNING SIGNS -

This re­quires tal­ented ed­i­tors who can turn ideas into mean­ing­ful sto­ries, and be­com­ing a great editor re­quires a spe­cial skill set not al­ways taught in jour­nal­ism school.

The Wal­rus has been re­spond­ing to this need for ed­i­tors since 2004 with its training pro­gram. To­day, more than 100 for­mer ed­i­to­rial in­terns and fel­lows are work­ing in jour­nal­is­tic or­ga­ni­za­tions in and out­side of Canada, and they are im­prov­ing the in­tegrity of the in­for­ma­tion we con­sume.

You can help en­sure that a va­ri­ety of per­spec­tives on vi­tal is­sues con­tinue to be shared by sup­port­ing the Wal­rus Ed­i­to­rial Fel­low­ship Pro­gram’s unique ed­u­ca­tional ex­pe­ri­ence. The fu­ture of jour­nal­ism de­pends on it.
