Pittsburgh City Paper, the city's only alternative weekly newspaper, is seeking a music intern for summer, 2013. And fall, 2013, while we're at it. Experienced writers with an interest in all types of music are encouraged to apply for this position. The internship schedule is flexible, requiring about 15 hours of work a week on average. (This is negotiable if an internship is required to be more intensive.) There is a small stipend involved.
City Paper covers Pittsburgh: local bands, artists and DJs; touring acts hitting town; the interesting and quirky characters who make the music scene. If you have an eye for what's going on beneath the average person's radar, and an interest in music new and old, you might be right for the job. A working knowledge of AP style is a major plus — a knowledge of music is preferred, but above all, this is a writing internship. People who should apply included but are not limited to: college-paper A&E writers; music bloggers; college-radio DJs who know their grammar; people who write news but have always had a hankering to write music; people who have read City Paper before.
To apply, please email your resume and three relevant writing samples to firstname.lastname@example.org. Any questions should be emailed as well. No phone calls, please! Seriously! We're busy over here!
Deadline for applications is Friday, April 5, at 4 p.m. The summer internship should start in May and run until August; the fall internship should start in early September and run until December.
Flier attached in PDF format if you'd like to post it in your English department, college radio station, coffeeshop, etc. Good luck!
