Journeys by Van Dyke is a travel company that has been crafting unique journey experiences for the discerning traveler on all seven continents for 39 years.


We create numerous written materials throughout the year which seek to reflect the impeccable quality of our journeys. Journeys by Van Dyke does not sell trips, we bring our guests on experiences of a lifetime in all four corners of the world. Our guests do not simply visit a destination, they are immersed in the culture, sample the local delicacies and admire the most stunning landscapes from unique points of view. Our journal along with our website are the windows into these exceptional journeys.

We are looking for a copywriter with print experience, an eye for details (yes, we can spot a missing apostrophe in a 90-page text heavy catalog!) who strives to push boundaries and produce compelling written works. This project consists of crafting impactful editorial content to showcase our full suite of journeys within our catalog. Each Journey is individually curated, and the stories that are written should convey the level of care that has gone into these unique experiences. The catalog is composed of 2-3 templated pages divided between product pages (our journeys), corporate pages and editorial articles. The catalog will be approximately 90 pages with about 80% of the content repeated from an existing template.

Example of the latest catalog:

The candidate must have excellent English, a knowledge of the copywriting process and possess their equipment, (i.e. their computer). In addition, the candidate must be able to work in the office in downtown Kitchener (305 King St W Unit 1004, Kitchener, ON N2G 1B9) on an infrequent basis for a period of approximately 4 to 6 weeks (late June to Mid-August).

• Create day-by-day Journey descriptions, in line with the existing voice, based on a provided structure
• In consultation with marketing, devise copy for corporate pages to most clearly convey what makes traveling with Journeys by Van Dyke special
• Be flexible to provide several prompt revisions as needed

Please provide a portfolio showcasing your work to this email: show contact info

Short-listed candidates will be contacted for interviews beginning March 18th, 2019.

The successful candidate will also have the opportunity to write copy for other print and digital projects on a semi-regular basis.
