First-Year Applications – NEW DEADLINE!


Update: The Spectatorial has extended the deadline for first-year applications! The new due date is a week away, on TUESDAY, OCTOBER 4th! 

If you’re a UofT first-year that is very interested in being a part of The Spec’s staff this year, we recommend you come by our LAUNCH PARTY this Wednesday, September 28th, at 7:30pm in Hart House’s Debates Room! You can find more info on that HERE (Pro-tip: it looks really, really good during interviews if we’ve seen you at our events before.)

Continue below to the first-year application!

The Spectatorial is looking for our new first-year editorial board staff, and we want you to apply!

If interested, please email us with:

  • A completed application form
  • Any additional relevant material you want to submit to make your application stand-out.
    • This can be a short portfolio of written work where you demonstrate your ability in fiction, poetry, or non-fiction (3 pieces total maximum), or a short portfolio of visual work/graphic design (6 pieces maximum). Submit these as attachments along with your application.


Download the application HERE

Positions available are listed below. **All first-years should apply to Editorial Board, but may also apply for Layout Editor.

Layout Editor (1); Editorial Board (2-3)

If you are applying for LAYOUT EDITOR, you must provide a visual portfolio containing a minimum of five pieces.

If you are applying for EDITORIAL BOARD, you do not need to provide a visual or written portfolio alongside your application, but one may make your application more competitive, and we encourage you to make yourself stand out in any way that you can. : )

One final note: The Spectatorial‘s fall journal is now open for submissions! If you are attaching a visual or written portfolio alongside your work, we encourage you to submit it for possible publication as well! For more information, go to our Journal Submissions page here, or our facebook event page here.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch with our Editor-in-Chief, Lorna Antoniazzi, at to discuss any questions you may have as a prospective editor.
