Call for Junior Editors

Itching for an opportunity to get more involved? Worried about the reading comprehension sections of the GRE and LSAT? Want to benefit from the sage wisdom and advice of an accomplished upper year student? Are you in first year?

Have we got the opportunity for you!

The Attaché Journal of International Affairs is looking for Junior Editors for its 2016 edition. Junior Editors will work with a Senior Editor on the scoring and editing processes that precede publication. The chance to work alongside an older student with significant editing experience should help you develop your own skills with academic writing. Junior Editors are also well positioned to take on more senior roles with the Attaché in later years. In the words of Littlefinger from Game of Thrones: “Chaos isn’t a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail, and never get to try again… Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is.” Interpret the quote’s relevancy to the rest of this paragraph however you will.

If you’re interested (we know you are) send an email to theattache@irsociety.ca with your name and the answers to each of the following questions by Friday, January 22, 2016 at midnight. Each response should be three sentences or less:


1. Why are you interested in being involved with the Attaché?
2. What paper/book/article that you’ve read since joining university the fascinated you the most (and why)?
3. What experience have you had writing or editing papers or articles before (other than those you have submitted to profs)?
4. Do you have any commitments that might limit your ability to complete tasks in a timely manner in February and March?
