April 8, 2006 at 12:21 AMViolinist.com is seeking a summer intern.
Our perfect intern would be a journalism student who also studies the violin at a university known for excellence in both. But our only requirements are that you be a violin lover with an informed understanding of the instrument as well as someone who has had instruction or experience in basic news writing and reporting. We are not looking for a blogger or essayist. Please do not apply for this position if you do not have at least some journalism training or experience.
You will be responsible for setting up and producing several Q&As with interesting people in the violin world, as well as reporting and writing additions to our violin wikis. Pay is a flat fee -- $1,000 for the internship, and we would be happy to work with your school if it is willing to accept the internship for credit.
This is a part-time, telecommuting, contract position where you will be working directly with Laurie and Robert Niles. Laurie is the editor of Violinist.com, a symphony violinist who has trained with top instructors at Indiana and Northwestern and a former newspaper reporter with a Master's in journalism. Robert is a winner of the Online Journalism Award and a finalist for the Webby and Eppy awards, who has worked at as reporter, editor, columnist and Web producer for some of the nation's leading newspapers. So the gig's a good learning opportunity.
To apply, please e-mail email@example.com with a resume (plain text or OpenOffice formats preferred) and a letter of introduction which includes your ideas for what you'd like to do with this opportunity. The application deadline is April 21.
