Get Involved


Have an interest in helping out at a literary magazine?

The Malahat Review welcomes volunteers all year round. You can be a student from the University of Victoria or a new retiree who’s finally got the time to devote. Everyone with a passion for writing is welcome.

What do we need help with?

  • Interviewing writers for our monthly e-newsletter, Malahat lite (can be done virtually)
  • Screening contest entries (for experienced readers only) (can be done virtually)
  • Proofing our quarterly issues (can be done virtually)
  • Proposing a task you’re passionate about (we’ll see if it needs doing)
  • Writing entries about back issues for the Our Back Pages project *this project is currently on hold as of 2020

What are the benefits?

  • Some volunteer work, such as interviewing for Malahat lite, pays $100 CAD honorariums
  • Free entry to all TMR ticketed events
  • Getting to know and work with TMR’s staff, board members, and contributors
  • An inside view of the workings of a literary magazine

How do you sign up?

  • Email us at
  • Tell us about yourself and what you’re interested in doing

A good magazine needs not only great writers and attentive readers, but also passionate doers. We look forward to hearing from you!
