Culturebot Needs an Editorial Intern

Culturebot is looking for an editorial intern in New York to help with editorial tasks centered on covering the fall season. The role requires 8-10 hours of work a week, most of it remotely. Hours are flexible but we need to have a sense of when you’re available to perform tasks in order to ensure that deadlines are met. We further appreciate that internships are intended as a means to an end for the intern, and therefore applicants should identify a topic or area of interest they wish to engage with during their internship which will be developed into a task or series of tasks to further the intern’s goals during the course of your work with us.

CORE RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Managing editorial calendars and facilitating coverage with our contributors
  • Proofreading and publishing articles through our Content System (wordpress)
  • Assisting in researching stories
  • Identifying subjects, writing, and publishing certain recurring stories (such as our “5 Questions” column)
  • Managing email newsletter publishing and distribution

The ideal applicant should be able to demonstrate the following:

  • An interest in the field of contemporary performance (live art, theater and/or dance) with a particular focus on performance as a live event and distinct practice from more traditional performing arts models
  • An interest in writing and editing, including at least one work sample
  • Have some knowledge of standard editing processes
  • Basic knowledge of HTML and blogging software preferred but not required
  • Be located in the New York area with internet access
  • Have a sense of where you want to develop in this field

Applicants should send letters of interest, CV’s, and work samples to editors(at)culturebot.org by August 30, 2012.
