This June, we’ll be welcoming our 20th internship class here at Untapped Cities and we’re looking for some bright, motivated writers to join the team as interns. 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 2019 class of interns in New York City.
Editorial Internship: The editorial interns will work directly with Untapped Cities’ Founder Michelle Young 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 to news articles. 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. Strong photography skills are preferred. The internship is unpaid and for school-credit. Perks include free behind-the-scenes tours in New York City.
Photography Internship: The photographic intern will be responsible for covering events, taking photographs for upcoming articles and social media, and working on an on-going photographic project Untapped Cities has underway. The internship is unpaid and for school-credit.
Events Internship: The event planning internship will take the lead on planning and executing the popular Untapped Cities tour series and Untapped Cities Insiders membership program featuring off-limits tours to New York City locations, contributor and reader happy hours, and talks.
