Application Deadline: October 15, 2017

News-O-Matic is looking for an Editorial Intern. There’s potential here for the job to develop into a full-time position!

Be a part of “America’s Daily Newspaper Just for Kids!” Join the News-O-Matic team to deliver exciting news for young readers and inspire a love of nonfiction at an early age.

Learn what it’s like to be at the crossroads of journalism and education at the forefront of emerging media.

News-O-Matic may be for elementary and middle school students, but the publication doesn’t shy away from complex stories. Topics range from world politics to scientific discoveries, sports, and art. An intern at News-O-Matic will be able to do much more than simple research. As part of a small News Room, each person can submit story ideas, make suggestions for improved design and usability of the app, and contribute to social media. Previous interns have conducted interviews with world-famous athletes and world leaders and amassed a portfolio of impressive bylines.

It’s a plus if you can edit images or video, translate into Spanish for English Language Learners, or help promote News-O-Matic on social.

If you are a responsible, enthusiastic, and dedicated writer or reporter looking to make a difference in the world, send an email with your resume and a cover letter.
