Denial of intern Liza Eliano’s imminent departure has delayed my posting a call for her replacement. Stupid school. Who will write epic art merch surveys for AFC in her absence? Who will write AFC’s event listings with such subtle humor? And most importantly, who will write profiles scathing enough to prompt their subjects to create ugly photoshop portraits of my face?

If you’re a journalism student and think you’re up for the task of editing AFC posts, and possibly even creating a few yourself, have I got a job for you. School credit available. The call below:
