Our democracy depends on a well-informed public.
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.
