Freelance Assignments Flow at Canoe & Kayak

No sections are off-limits to pitches at Canoe & Kayak, where 60 percent of the content is freelance written. Though the editors have a stable of writers they assign to, they are always on the lookout for new voices and ideas — just make sure they’re original.
