Contribute to the Dal Gazette

The Dal Gazette invites all students and writers with all levels of experience to write for us; there are five sections to contribute to:

We hold contributor meetings every other week; usually on the third floor of the SUB in the Society Hub (the big glass room across from our office.) 

At each meeting, the five section editors give out their pitches and a staff member hosts a mini-workshop; here you can ask about our Winter 2018 Internship Program, sign up for a specific section’s weekly email pitches, pick up or pitch a story and ask our editors any questions you have.

Our section editors are always interested in hearing your pitches; they’ll help you out if you’re a first-timer, point you towards the best sources or help you work out a pitch – whatever you need.

Every part and full-time student who pays tuition pays into a Levy that supports the Dalhousie Gazette and allows us to remain independently run; each student who pays that levy is automatically a member of the Dal Gazette and therefore can contribute.

We encourage all writers and content creators to contribute their work to us for online, print or even both! We welcome contributors for any section and there is no limit to how many sections one person can contribute to. Our sections include News, Opinions, Arts & Lifestyle, Sports and Visuals. Multimedia submissions (such as video clips and photo essays) are are also a welcome addition to our ever-expanding website.
