Bandersnatch is the official student-run newspaper at John Abbott College. It has published an issue every two weeks since 1971 and is partially funded by the Student Activities Committee and by advertising solicited members.
Can I join?
Any Abbott student with something to say can write for or contribute to any of our sections, whether it’s Campus Life, News, Entertainment, Opinions, Arts & Culture, Science & Technology, “The Procrastinator” or Sports. We aren’t picky!
If you want to get involved, come to one of our meetings or stop by our office (H-016) located right next to Printing Services in Herzberg basement. Anybody can be a part of Bandersnatch and you don’t need to be in the Media program or have any prior experience. We’re always happy to have new faces around.
We always need contributors and staff writers, and if you’re interested in an executive position, the best way to become known is to get involved now.
How does production work?
We publish an issue once every two weeks. One week we will hold a meeting on Tuesday to decide on content and bring up any other related topics such as position elections or later plans for the paper.
During the week we write and send in our articles by Sunday night. On Monday and Tuesday of the following week our editing staff puts together the paper using Adobe InDesign.
We are always looking for copy editors, and we welcome any new face who’s eager to be a part of the paper.
