You'll get the twice-monthly newsletter from the welcome tier as well as access to editing sessions with me. I've interviewed and hired writers and creators (and applied to plenty of things myself) so I know what it takes to be noticed and recognize your own individual strengths and unique abilities. In this tier, you can request a half-hour-long one-on-one on best practices for when you're looking to get hired and request edits on cover letters, award applications, pitches, etc., up to two drafts a month. Please reach out five days in advance of your deadline so I can make time and we can have a proper back-and-forth! Also, feel free to email me for your journalistic and creative dilemmas for casual advice anytime at all.

About sarah krichel

An affordable and alternative source for journalistic education, creative advice and existential essays. Come create, tell stories, find work, grow wiser, fight capitalism and stay tethered to your inner kid with me.

My name is Sarah and I’m a writer, editor and creator. I cover a whole ton of stuff across publications like VICE News, Canadaland, Passage, etc. Sometimes I make zines and draw bad comics. But why are we here? I'm really passionate about (and really good at) coaching young writers—particularly BIPOC and 2LGBTQIA+ writers—in getting their journalism careers to where they want them to be. If you’re tired of the old-age whiteness of the media industry, burdened by your post-secondary school's underwhelming curriculum, or in any way trying to kick your practice off the ground(high schoolers, welcome!)—you’ve come to the right place. I consider my journalistic endeavours to be a kind of activism, and I think you should too. This page advocates for equitable journalism, anti-oppressive newsrooms, labour rights and mental health, independent publishing, knowing your worth as a creator and rule-breaking storytelling. By extension, you’re that journalist too.
