E-180 Apprenticeship Program For Emerging Writers

E-180 Apprenticeship Program For Emerging Writers

For the past three years, E-180 has been developing matchmaking experiences, web and mobile tools, to connect like-minded people interested in sharing knowledge, one-on-one and in person. Our goal has been to transform all cities, spaces, events and organizations into peer-learning hubs. Now we’re adding a new platform, the E-180 Magazine.

E-180 magazine is a leading progressive media source, with a unique editorial focus on innovation in learning. We’ve witnessed the share economy revolutionize the way we consume, travel and define community: E-180 magazine aims to investigate how it’s shaping our learning patterns.

E-180 Magazine explores everything new in peer-to-peer learning, in our personal lives, our society and in how we do business. We bring our readers news on the new face of education in the sharing economy from Montreal and beyond. We explore what works and what doesn’t by talking to the people at the heart of these movements.

The apprenticeship program

We’re looking for passionate writers and aspiring journalists with opinions to join our team (French or English)!

For 6 months, you’ll be paired with a mentor who will be available to help you get your story across; you’ll also meet other writers and the E-180 community who will help grow your network. Each month, you’ll be responsible for pitching the stories that matter to you to the Magazine editorial committee, hashing them out with your mentor and see them get published.

The apprenticeship will give you the opportunity to meet with engaged people and get invaluable journalistic experience.

To apply or if you have questions, send a one to two page writing sample to alina@e-180.com by 5pm on Friday June 13th, 2014
