“Arts & Culture interns work with a team of four editors producing the print paper’s food, music, film, theater and books sections as well as blog posts and our special sections.
Internships are geared toward interests and knowledge, but involve a wide variety of subjects and tasks. A&C interns work closely with staff editors on short-form previews, reviews and blog posts, and may work on longer features after they’ve demonstrated aptitude, work ethic and familiarity with the paper’s standards and voice. A&C interns are generally also asked to take on one large data collection and organization project, organize food and drink tastings, do occasional transcription, help with fact-checking and perform minor errands.
Internships are unpaid and require a three-month commitment. We are happy to do whatever is necessary to get you college credit, if relevant. Interns must work at least 20 hours per week. The schedule is flexible other than required Wednesday afternoon staff meetings. In general, we’re here to help you learn about journalism and will work to see that you take away far more than you give.
We ask that you send us a copy of your resume, three published clips, answer the questions below and write a sample food, music, performance or movie listing. Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org.”
