Notice: Due to COVID-19, in-person volunteer orientations won't be occurring for the remainder of the publishing year. To schedule an over-the-phone or remote orientation, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Holly Liu, at volunteer@uniter.ca.

Submissions of articles, letters, graphics and photos are encouraged. New contributors must attend a volunteer orientation workshop to ensure that the volunteer understands all of the publication’s basic guidelines. If you are an experienced writer looking to contribute a piece and you are unable to attend an orientation, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator for alternate options. 

Volunteer orientations are held most Wednesdays in the Uniter office, 0RM14 in the Bulman Centre, University of Winnipeg. There is no need to register for orientations, and drop-ins are welcome.

  • Wednesday, Jan. 8 at 5 p.m.
