BmoreArt Is Hiring Two Summer Interns!

We’re looking for two highly qualified recent graduate or current college students to join our small team this summer in Baltimore. The editorial intern will write reviews, profiles, news and more for our online arts journal, assist in covering social media platforms, photograph and video record arts events in Baltimore, attend weekly editorial meetings and assist at our launch parties and events. The photo and marketing intern will also work on social media coverage of arts events in Baltimore, and will help distribute print magazines throughout the city to our merchant and nonprofit locations, attend weekly team meetings to discuss marketing strategy, and help out at our magazine launch parties and evening events.

Interns must have a flexible summer schedule with free weekend and evening hours to attend and report on events throughout the Baltimore region. Given the nature of this work, some preference will be given to individuals that have access to a car.

These positions require a time commitment of 10 hours of work per week. Interns may select to either be paid $500 a month or to earn college credit.
