Fall Internship Opportunity: South Philly Review, Editing

sprA weekly newspaper with a circulation of 57,000, the South Philly Review publishes Thursdays serving readers door-to-door and online at southphillyreview.com, Facebook and Twitter @sophreview. With its news; opinion; arts and entertainment; food and drink; and sports sections, interns can see the creation of a newspaper from the ground up. College-level students and recent graduates looking for a real-world journalism experience are welcome to check out the Review’s Internship Program.

Editorial Internship

Learn the many facets of journalism, including, but not limited to, fact-checking, creative writing, interviewing, news judgment, article selection, the importance of accuracy and, if meeting certain benchmarks, going out on assignments for print and Web-exclusive articles. All interns have their own workstation with Internet access. The workweek can be designed around other jobs, obligations or school.

There is no compensation for internships, but interns can receive college credit as well as bylines on Word on the Street and articles. Students must be available 10 to 15 hours a week.

Please include a résumé, published clips or writing samples along with a cover letter telling us about yourself and if you have interest in any one area — sports, features, hard news — so we can tailor your internship to your interests. Also, note if you have any experience or interest in Web-related work that may include monitoring our Facebook and Twitter pages in addition to assisting with our website. Tell us your availability, school schedule or both, as well as a projected start date and how long you think you will be taking the internship.
