Spring 2018 Staff Editing Internship
For 4 months during the summer, spring and fall semester, Study Breaks offers an Editing Internship for a limited number of college students.
Student editors will edit, fact-check, and upload articles to the website; as well as provide feedback to the intern student writers.
Interns will practice and improve fundamental editing skills such as correcting typos, fixing stylistic errors, and punctuating phrases appropriately. They will also ensure the content is properly formatted and follows our writing guidelines. Interns will also be required to create titles, descriptions, and captions.
This program is designed to increase your aptitude for editing by providing practice and feedback. Every week, you will have individual sessions where the editing mentor at Study Breaks will review your work. This will help improve your own writing and analytical capacities. You will also learn WordPress basics; a popular Content Management System (CMS) that is used by many modern online publications to publish content.
