Editorial (blog) intern
EDITORIAL DESIGN INTERN
We have lots of ideas for our blog and social media channels, but little time to implement them! We are looking for an organized and creative writer who is interested in penning unique point of view posts, loves finding great photography or artwork to visually support it (and credits accordingly) and knows their way around WordPress.
“Working with Heidi as her editorial intern was one of the highlights of my college career. I was able to combine my passions of blogging and design, and gained practical experience that I will carry with me throughout my career. I had the opportunity to intern for three companies in college, and I can say that without a doubt that I got the most out of my time with Spitfiregirl. It was a dream come true for me!” ~ Taylor, Editorial Intern
