Break out the laptop, the pen and notebook or just a crayon and a McDonald’s napkin because QSaltLake is accepting submissions for the annual Queer Literary Issue. Selections must be 1,500 words or less, and shorter submissions are more likely to be published. We accept poems, fiction and non-fiction stories that are related to, or somehow correlate with, queer issues. Please email [email protected] with selections. The deadline is Sept. 1.
The QSaltLake Intern
QSaltLake is accepting applications for its Fall 2011 Internship Program. The internship is intended for school credit and professional experience. Participants will not be errand-people and will be expected to complete regular writing assignments and other newsroom tasks.
Applicants do not have to be journalism students, although it is beneficial to have interest in queer and independent news. Students will be involved in every step of production, from pitching a story to the final completion of the newspaper. Knowledge of multimedia projects, such as video, social media and podcast is beneficial.
Two interns will be selected to work in QSaltLake’s Sugar House office, conveniently located near the University of Utah, Westminster and I-80. Office and working hours will be determined by the student, the supervisor and the stories, but should range between 15 and 25 hours a week. The assignments will range from in-depth investigative reporting to features and entertainment.
The internship begins Aug. 31 and ends Nov. 17. To apply, please email a cover letter, resume and references to [email protected]. Prospective candidates will be contacted for an interview.
