Picture This Post WRITER, Two-Week Writing Intensive – VOLUNTEER Position 30 hours TOTAL – within a 10-14 day window
Check with your Internship Coordinator BEFORE accepting to determine how you might do this internship for credit.
Picture This Post magazine, www.picturethispost.com, alerts time-strapped readers to cultural offerings that are the 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.
Picture This Post uses a very description-rich writing style that aims to give readers a vivid mental picture of the film, play, festival, performance, etc. being reviewed. It is unlike the style you are trained to write in at school and unlike traditional criticism you may read in newspapers or other magazines. Rather, this is an opportunity to learn writing skills such as: how to convey point-of-view without making the review about you; how to be conscious of word choices; how to edit yourself; etc. By mastering the “Picture This” style, you will develop a better understanding of Writers’ Guidelines in general.
See introductory Writers’ Guideline– https://www.picturethispost.com/about-picture-this-post-for-writers/
If you would like to see additional Writers’ Guidelines before you apply please contact the Editor-in-Chief online here:
Your first review will be a film review from a trusted source of high quality films. For example, click a picture in this story to read a review:
This initial story will be a trial balloon (See https://www.picturethispost.com/picture-this-post-review-writer-trial-balloon-and-beyond/ )
After this initial story is published, you may opt to continue writing film reviews or venture into other areas of content that Picture This Post covers: art; dance; music; theater; books; museums. Every story you write will be extensively edited before publication.
At the conclusion of this writing intensive period, you should have 3 – 10 “inked” reviews to add to your resume; you will have access to the Picture This Post review opportunity automation for writers to find future review opportunities.
Note: Future writing assignments—after this writing intensive training—are not on any schedule—you only write a review on topics you are interested in and only take on assignments when you have time.
Please Note: ALL Picture This Post editors and writers are volunteers—from top to bottom. There is not a paid internship opportunity
This position is an excellent opportunity for anyone interested in honing their writing skills, and for initial exposure to how an online magazine works.
