New Writing North is looking for an intern to work on our arts journalism magazine, Cuckoo Review. Cuckoo Review is written by 15-23 year-olds and we cover music, theatre, films, art and books (and other things too). We have partnerships with publishers, record companies and arts and cultural venues across the country. The Cuckoo Review internship is a chance to gain hands-on experience of working within an arts organisation, and an opportunity to develop your editing and proof-reading skills.

The internship will be one day a week for three months (beginning June 2015) and you will receive a bursary of £50 per day for this work.

We are looking for an intern aged 18-23 who has an interest in journalism or publishing. The position will be based in New Writing North’s Newcastle office. For a full description of the role, please see the job description here.

To apply, please email a covering letter explaining why you want to be a Cuckoo intern (no more than two pages) and a CV to Laura Brewis at [email protected].

The deadline for applications is 5pm, Wednesday 27 May 2015 and informal interviews will be held on Wednesday 3rd June from 2-4pm. The internship will begin with a handover/training day on Tuesday 16 June 2015. Applicants must be available for these dates.
