Art Fag City Seeks Fall Interns!

by The AFC Staff on August 14, 2012 · 0 comments Opportunities

Are you a journalism student with a burning desire to edit everything in sight? Perhaps you love the accomplishment of creating a tidy Excel spreadsheet. Either way, have we got an internship for you!

If this is you, get in touch.

Art Fag City is seeking fall editorial and administrative interns.

Ideal editorial candidates have a strong interest in visual art and digital media, are proficient in basic HTML, and possess excellent writing and editing skills. Applicants should also be extremely organized, self-motivated, and detail-oriented. Familiarity with AFC’s content is absolutely essential. If you love the Chicago Manual of Style and are familiar with the word “gerund,” then we want you.

Ideal administrative candidates have a strong interest in visual art and digital media, are proficient in Excel and Quickbooks, and possess excellent attention to detail. Applicants with an interest in special event planning and development will get extra points in our book.

Interns will work directly with the AFC staff to support all aspects of running an art blog, from content management to fundraising efforts. The position offers valuable hands-on experience in the fast-growing world of digital media, and in-depth insight into a prestigious online publication. Interns will also have the opportunity to attend private tours and panel discussions as well as contribute original content for the blog.

Our previous interns have gone on to full-time positions at ANIMAL, ArtINFO, Rhizome, Glide Magazine, and the Dia Foundation, among others. They were capable, motivated, often brilliant individuals who left AFC ready to make their mark on the art world. If you want to join them, get in touch.

Editorial Intern duties include:

  • Copyediting posts and columns.
  • Digital image management.
  • Project-based research.

Administrative Intern duties include:

For either position, familiarity with Javascript and PHP is a fantastic bonus.

Applicants should expect to make a minimum commitment of 2-3 days per week, although some work can be done remotely. You should live in New York—we’re based in Clinton Hill, and we’ll want to see your face regularly. Candidates who have or are working towards a degree in journalism, art history, or arts administration are preferred. This position is unpaid.

If interested, please e-mail a cover letter, resume, availability, and, for the Editorial Intern, two clips of your writing, to internships@artfagcity.com with the job title you are applying for—either “Editorial Intern Application” or “Administrative Intern Application”—as the subject line. Application deadline: August 24th, 2012
