Be a WORN Intern!

THE DEADLINE IS SEPTEMBER 19th!

We are looking for a few awesome interns to join WORN Fashion Journal. If you have a dedicated passion to write, snap photographs, plan parties, style photoshoots, or graphic design, then our cat-decorated, snack-filled Parkdale office may just be the place for you.

Our intern positions offer valuable opportunities for those interested in fashion and publishing. Because WORN is a small magazine, our interns work alongside our editors, writers, and graphic designers helping with real tasks (never fetching coffee or picking up dry cleaning) and getting a chance to show their stuff in a creative work environment. Our interns frequently graduate to WORN staff positions, but everyone is a Wornette for life.

Why choose WORN? We are an independent print publication dedicated to offering a unique and inclusive perspective on fashion and style. Our readership is expanding dramatically throughout Canada and internationally. We are increasingly recognized by fashion lovers, vintage hounds, academics, and artists as a truly unique and smart magazine for people who want more fashion and less fluff.

Applications are due by the stroke of midnight on September 19, 2012.

Looking for a Co-Director of Events at WORN


WORN Fashion Journal has thrown some truly great parties: karaoke, decade dances, gala fundraisers — we love to celebrate with our readership and community. But all of this play isn’t without a little elbow grease behind the scenes. We do our best to cook up something special for every WORN event, and now we need another crafty events coordinator to add his or her own special spice to our upcoming launch parties and fundraisers. This is an excellent opportunity for leadership experience in event planning and publicity within Toronto’s (and beyond) artistic community. This is a volunteer position for now, on average 5-6 hours a week, double time just before an event. A 12 month commitment is required. The successful applicant will be working closely with the current event director to divide tasks, generate ideas and explore the possibilities of additional programming.
