Calling all keeners: Maisonneuve is now accepting applications for part-time research interns. We’re looking for enthusiastic, self-motivated candidates who have a passion for magazines, serious writing skills and the ability to pay painstaking attention to details. You don’t need to have studied journalism or literature, but you must have some writing experience (student media, blogging, freelance, etc.) and familiarity with both the print and online versions of the magazine.
Research interns will work part-time while the magazine is in production for our Fall and Winter issues, June through December. Responsibilities include fact-checking, proofreading, writing for the website and reviewing books for the magazine's book room. Hours are flexible, but work will be most demanding in early August and early November, in line with our production cycle. Interns must speak and write English fluently and live in Montreal. (A working knowledge of French is a plus, but not a requirement.)
This position pays a modest honorarium.
To apply, email a cover letter, CV and three writing samples to selena [at] maisonneuve [dot] org by Monday, May 14, with the subject line “Winter–Spring Internship Application.” Can’t wait to hear from you!
