Picture This Post magazine, www.picturethispost.com, alerts time-strapped readers to cultural offerings that are best match for their interests in art, books, dance, film, museums, music, theater, as well as travel with a focus on culture. We not only cover culture-creators and venues with high name recognition, but also delight in helping to showcase bold, creative strokes by fledgling artists in all genres.
The BLACK LIVES MATTER NEWSLETTER is an adjunct to the ongoing and growing coverage via interviews with #BLM thought leaders profiled in the GEORGE FLOYD: IN MEMORIAM ROUNDUP in Picture This Post—see https://www.picturethispost.com/george-floyd-in-memoriam-2/
It is one of the family of Picture This Post newsletters— see https://www.picturethispost.com/newsletters-from-picture-this-post/
Your training and responsibilities as Assistant Editor (5 hours/week) will include:
-Learning the mechanics of 3 or more email marketing software systems widely used in both b2c and b2b scenarios (e.g. Mailchimp, Send In Blue, Sender): how to create/edit design templates; import/maintain lists; develop campaign (approximately one/month for duration of internship); understanding statistics automatically generated by these systems
-Maintaining lists with eye to compliance of the 2009 CanSpam Act governing bulk email—including basics of how to manage Excel type databases
-Correspondence geared to invite opt-in to the BLACK LIVES MATTER newsletter
As Associate Editor (10 hours/week) you will also be responsible for content curation of each newsletter edition, working closely with Picture This Post Editor-in-Chief to create newsletters that engage and expand readership. Time permitting, you will also source new lists of potential newsletter subscribers and develop one-to-one correspondence to invite opt-ins.
ALL Picture This Post editors and writers are volunteers—from top to bottom. There is not a paid internship opportunity.
Check with your Internship Coordinator BEFORE accepting to determine how you might do this internship for credit.
This position is an excellent opportunity for anyone interested in keeping a spotlight on issues of racial justice, and especially from the viewpoint of Black culture creators. This is also a chance to develop a core marketing skillset. The Associate Editor position will also teach criteria and methods for newsletter content creation.
