Join Us


The frustration we hear from fresh grads is the need to have ‘work experience’ to be successful in their job applications.

At Meld Magazine, students are put on the same beat as other fully-fledged journalists and content creators. Join our growing community of writers, editors, photographers, illustrators and designers. Gain real work experience and build your portfolio with us!

First established in 2008, Meld Magazine is an independent not-for-profit online media outlet with a diverse audience of readers. We seek to provide international students with a platform for their issues and voices to be heard and to ensure that their stories are well-represented within the Australian media landscape. We are just one part of Meld Community, an organisation which aims to support international students and is also responsible for the annual Melbourne International Student Conference.


Please note that all roles with Meld Community/Meld Magazine are voluntary.
