Will you be enrolled in classes at a local college or university next spring? Are you interested in a writing career, possibly one focused on music? We're looking for a few good interns for spring. These are unpaid positions, but you will earn course credit (given that your college or university is willing to work with us) and the invaluable experience of working in a newsroom.
There will be some data entry involved, but we aren't going to chain you to a desk and make you input data all day like robots! We want people who like to tell stories, and who want to tell stories for the Observer. We'll expect you to come up with story ideas and pitch them in meetings, and to provide smart, engaging content for both print and the DC9 At Night blog.
If you're interested, send a résumé and cover letter, as well as links to recent clips, to firstname.lastname@example.org. This internship will start in early January, so let us know your availability, and where you will be enrolled.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
