This May, we’ll be welcoming our 14th internship class here at Untapped Cities and we’re looking for some bright, motivated writers to join the team. Our interns get to do it all, writing published articles from day one, managing their own columns, exploring the city, and covering events. As an Untapped Cities intern, you can learn how a web magazine really works, pitch your own ideas, have an article published within your first week, and, of course, re-discover the city you love. If you go to school in New York City or if you’re just looking for journalism experience, we’re currently accepting applications to join our Summer 2017 class of interns in New York City.
As an added bonus, Untapped Cities is now part of the New Museum NEW INC Incubator so you’ll get all the benefits of working on a dynamic environment tailored for art, design, and technology companies. We’ll be producing panels and events at the New Museum and expanding our series of tours around New York City.
Editorial Internship: The editorial interns will work directly with Untapped Cities’ Founder and Managing Editor on determining the publication schedule, proposing new articles, and writing their own regular column. Our editorial interns work on a full range of pieces from features, news articles, to roundups. As an editorial intern, you will also gain experience with writing for search engine optimization and using social media to promote your own work and the work of the site. You don’t need to be a journalism major, as long as you’re a strong writer and can come ready with ideas for content. The internship is unpaid and for school-credit. A transportation stipend will be provided for full-time interns. Perks include free behind-the-scenes tours in NYC.
