“I know how hard it is to get your foot in the door into the entertainment industry and learned early on that experience and relationship building were the keys to unlocking those doors. When I decided to publish Press+1 it was important to me that a significant element to the magazine be grounded in new voices and the ability to mentor those new voices to their future successes.” ~ Kindah Mardam Bey – Editor-In-Chief & Publisher of Press+1
A Canadian-focused, but globally-minded publication created by a diverse range of people nationwide. Press+1 ‘Your Ticket To Entertainment’, one of Canada’s largest online entertainment magazines, is looking for writers aiming to gain some experience in writing from our mentorship program. This is an unpaid internship but can be an invaluable part of getting your foot in the door of the entertainment industry. Many of our previous Press+1 journalists who have been a part of our mentorship program have gone on to very successful careers in the entertainment industry through the connections they have made, field work and polishing their skills as a journalist.
We are looking for writers across Canada interested in covering the arts & entertainment in your local area; anything from doing articles to interviews and reviews. We need people who are excited by the world of arts & entertainment who have a positive attitude and a respect for deadlines. Press+1 is looking for people who are self-motivated and eager to learn about the arts and entertainment industry.
Here are specific areas of interest we are looking to currently expand:
• Canadian Films

The experience of being published will be a great help with future employment opportunities, you will get tickets to events in your area, do interviews, review new books/films/music releases, and if you remain a consistent and efficient part of Press+1, we will write a letter of recommendation for you.
You would be required to write reviews, do interviews and write articles. Opportunities to become an Editor. You must have easy access to a computer and the internet, and can easily access a form of transportation.
