QSaltLake is accepting applications for its Spring 2012 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 College and I-80. Office and working hours will be determined by the student, the supervisor and the stories, but should range between 10 and 20 hours per week. The assignments will range from in-depth investigative reporting to features and entertainment.
The internship begins Jan. 9 and ends April 18. To apply, please email a cover letter, resume and references to [email protected]. Prospective candidates will be contacted for an interview.
