filling Station has opportunities for Calgarians who love unusual literature and art and would enjoy volunteering in a Collective setting.
filling Station Publications Society encourages emerging writers by publishing filling Station Magazine and creating engaging public events. The magazine’s editorial mandate is to publish original and innovative poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and art. Based in Calgary, filling Station is distributed nationally to independent bookstores and by subscription. It is also available as a Digital Edition through Zinio. An average of 25 volunteers bring filling Station to life each year, many of whom are students or graduates of a complementary practice (design, photography, illustration, journalism) or aspiring creative writers who find friendship and support at the magazine. Since the magazine’s inception in 1996, many filling Station volunteers have gone on to publish books or have embarked on careers in the magazine industry or related industries.
In addition to participating in publishing and events related activities, additional opportunities exist in 2011 for professional development and participation in exciting projects that will expand filling Station’s digital presence at www.fillingstation.ca with video, audio, and blogging.
Whether you can spare a little time or a lot, if you have skills and passion to share and you are interested in learning more, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with Volunteer in the subject line.
