SPORTSWRITING INTERNSHIPS

SPORTSWRITING INTERNSHIPS

 

As a part-time (15-18 hours a week) sportswriting intern at seattlepi.com, you will be exposed to and enveloped in the dynamic and trailblazing world of online journalism. You will be expected to work at our newsroom and have a chance to become a big fish in a small pond, working directly with our sports staff on breaking news, long-term projects, sports analysis, photo galleries, historical research, editorial blogging and social media outreach.

 

Sportswriting internships at seattlepi.com also provide the opportunity to attend sports events as a member of the media, such as Mariners games, Sounders games, Seahawks games or practice, and/or other events (as long as they are in season). Your work will be considered – and usually used – for placement on the seattlepi.com home page, and will automatically be promoted on our sports index.

 

Experience working with social media, such as Twitter and Facebook, is expected. Familiarity with HTML or with WordPress is nice but not required. You must be able to receive college credit for an internship – non-students or even recently graduated alumni cannot be considered.

 

Now accepting applications for fall 2014, and winter and spring 2015.

 

How to apply:

Please email a brief cover letter (can be in the email body), your résumé and at least three writing samples (as attachments or Web links) to sports editor Nick Eaton at nickeaton@seattlepi.com with “Sports internship application” in the subject line. Applicants with no published writing samples will not be considered. Letters of reference are welcomed but not required.
