Wanted: Hockey writers for The Want List, Season II (2010-11)

The Want List is offering two editorial internships for the 2010-11 season. The Want List is a hockey card & memorabilia magazine. The 2010-11 schedule features four magazine issues of The Want List plus regular online content at www.theWantList.ca.

The Want List would like to find two young, aspiring writers for the upcoming season. Both positions are remote, with preference for one writer in the Toronto area and one writer in the Calgary or Edmonton area. Each writer will have the opportunity to fulfill four magazine articles and 20 online collector profiles.

Each writer will be responsible for accumulating at least three sources with each magazine story. Each writer must also interview collectors throughout the season for the weekly collector’s profile series. Both writers will have the opportunity to interact with each other, offering review and feedback on each other’s work. Each writer will also have their work reviewed and proofed by The Want List team.

The writer’s schedule will be flexible and open to his or her particular interests. This is an unpaid internship, although it will provide plenty of experience in commitment to the project and delivery of content. Deadlines are mandatory.

Interested writers should contact The Want List at rds@hockeyMedia.ca. Please be sure to highlight your interest in this project.
