internship for civil eats

posted May 24, 2012

Civil Eats is currently seeking an editorial intern for the summer. Candidates must possess editorial and writing experience and have a basic understanding of general food systems issues and a willingness to learn more as they go. Previous experience with WordPress is a bonus, but not absolutely necessary.
Duties will include writing articles for publication on the site, editing and loading content to the site, and working with writers to develop articles for an ongoing series about local food systems change in the U.S. There will also be an opportunity to participate in discussions about the future of the site and content development. The commitment is between 10-15 hours per week.
This is an unpaid internship position. Candidates may be located anywhere in the U.S. If interested, please send a CV and clips of previously published reporting/blogging, as well as a cover letter telling us why you think you are qualified for this position, including where you get your news about food and the issues that you follow closely, to: editor@civileats.com. Interviews will be conducted and a candidate will be selected in the coming weeks.
Best,
Paula Crossfield
