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.
