The Internship: This is not your run of the mill internship – you won't be getting coffee or making copies. I'm looking for self-motivated journalism students (ideally someone who is aspiring to be a freelance writer) to help me with story research, interviews, social media management, photo sourcing and, most of all, writing. You'll have the opportunity to earn dozens of bylines during this internship, so my intern must have excellent writing and communication skills, experience with reporting and proficiency in Gmail and Google docs, Microsoft Office Suite and CMS systems like Wordpress. If you're passionate about food and travel, that's a plus as most of my writing revolves around those two topics.
The Requirements: This internship is only open to Senior (4th year) students and graduate students. You need to be based in Atlanta or have the ability to meet at my Buckhead office once per month. The internship will require about 10-15 hours per week of your time (mostly spent earning bylined work) and you will need to commit to a minimum of 3 months, though ideally I'm looking for someone to work with me through the end of Spring 2016 semester. NOTE: This internship is unpaid, but between the experience you'll gain, the clips you'll earn to start building your portfolio and the time spent with me (i.e. you can pick my brain about how to make great money as a full-time freelance food and travel writer), it will be well worth your time. I'm willing to work with your school to help you earn class credit, as well.
How to Apply: To apply, please submit the following by emailing email@example.com with the subject line FREELANCE INTERNSHIP:
