The Martlet Publication Society
Thanks for supporting our fundraiser!
Until January 2021— we're launching a campaign to raise $5,000 to help broaden opportunities for our team and modernize the office.
This year, we won two John H. MacDonald National Student Journalism awards — for Investigative Reporting and Op-eds — at the NASH student journalism conference in Vancouver. However, due to funding, both members of our team who won these awards were unable to attend the conference and receive them in person due to funding. Next year, we'd love to be able to send more members of our team to attend this conference in Toronto — especially anyone nominated for awards!
Additionally, we've recently found out from UVic's IT team that the Business Manager's computer, which is over a decade old and handles all accounting and payroll, will likely not be operational much longer. Replacing it is a high priority.
Want to receive emails updating you on what we've been up to, testimonials from our team, and some highlights from our latest stories? Click here to subscribe to our alumni mailing list (or here if you just want to read one of the newsletters to see if you're interested). For the next two weeks, this newsletter will focus largely on our fundraising effort, but after that it'll pop into your inbox semi-regularly to keep you in the loop on the biggest stories and projects we've taken on.
All of the funds we raise go directly back into supporting and training the next generation of journalists at UVic.
