Want to get involved with The Daily?

We are always looking for new writers and contributors to join our team! As a student at McGill you are already a member of the Daily Publications Society and have a say in how our paper is run. We’d love to hear your opinions and feedback and have you drop by to help out!

The paper is made up of a number of different sections that cover all aspects of events both on campus, in Montreal, and in a global context. From News to Commentary to Sports, there is a lot of opportunity for writers to find the sections that work best for them. Don’t feel limited, though! Writers can (and often do!) write for multiple sections. We bold this because it’s so important: No experience is necessary. Anyone can write for us, and if you are feeling like you need a little more help, we have an experienced team of editors who can help you with anything from finding ledes to conducting interviews to word choice and copy. If writing isn’t your thing, we are also always looking for photographers, illustrators, designers, radio journalists, and web developers who can collaborate to help give The Daily its distinct style.

Our Statement of Principles guides the way we cover these stories and that’s a great place to start to get an idea of what we’re all about. Working from an anti-oppressive standpoint, The Daily works to shed light on stories that often aren’t covered in mainstream media and often gives priority to marginalized voices and viewpoints.

We have productions nights on Friday evenings from 5 p.m. till the wee hours of the morning; this is a great time to drop by and see how the paper gets made. If you’re curious, we also have drop-in hours where an editor will be there to help show you around and give you some info to see in which ways you might like to contribute.

If you decide you really like us, consider running for a position on our editorial board.
