Cuckoo Review needs an intern

New Writing North is looking for an intern to work on our arts journalism magazine, Cuckoo Review. Cuckoo Review is the only arts journalism site in the UK to be written by young people aged 15-23, and covers the whole of the north of England, from Newcastle in the east to Manchester in the west. We cover music, theatre, films, art and books (and other things too) and have partnerships with publishers, record companies and arts venues across the country. The Cuckoo Review internship is a chance to gain hands-on experience of working within an arts organisation, liaising with our partners and young reviewers, and an opportunity to develop your editing and proof-reading skills.

The internship will be one day a week for three months (beginning in July 2013) and will receive a bursary of £600 for this work.

We are looking for an intern aged 18-23 who has an interest in journalism or publishing. For a full description of the role, please click the link below.
