Where am I?

You are visiting OshaWhat.ca, a volunteer-run online magazine covering the shifting culture of Durham Region. This is a media platform by and for the community. Send tips, ideas and questions to hello@oshawhat.ca.

Who are you people?

OshaWhat is created by a group of very attractive local artsy nerds. We’re doing this in our spare time. We have day jobs, we’re in school, we’re taking care of our families, we’re looking for work… we’re a whole bunch of things and now we have extra deadlines.

Why are you doing this?

Someone had to.

I want to play too.

Cool. We are always looking for writers, designers, illustrators, photographers and subject-matter experts to join in. If you aren’t sure how you could help, and you want to explore options, drop us a line. We prefer research and reporting to experiential stuff, so show us you are ready to work.

To pitch an article or be considered for the contributors list, please write to Erin, editor OshaWhat Magazine at hello@oshawhat.ca and include the following items:

– your C.V.
– a 200–300 word introduction that explains who you are and why you want to volunteer your time to contribute to OshaWhat
– a link to your blog, portfolio site or website if you have one
– two samples of your best artwork OR two writing samples of unedited work.

We get a large volume of mail and will get back to you as soon as we can. Thanks for your patience and we look forward to hearing from you!
