West Side Spirit is looking for strong writers who are NYC news-savvy and want hands-on journalism experience. Interns preferably should have some background writing for a newspaper. Ideal candidates are outgoing, smart and happy to pitch in as necessary.
We have fall, spring and summer internships, according to academic calendar. A minimum of two days per week is usually required. The position is unpaid but academic credit is an option.
Interns write stories, develop the weekly cultural calendar, conduct research and participate in the editorial department of a weekly newspaper. There is tangible experience in developing stories on deadline, covering communities at the grassroots level and receiving bylines.
Submit resume, cover letter and 3-4 clips/writing samples to Charlotte Eichna, executive editor, email@example.com. The application deadline is rolling.
