Writing Internship


Harvestworks offers several other internships, in return for time worked, interns can gain teaching experience through our “Interns Teach Interns” initiative and receive access to lab equipment free of charge. Individual arrangements (e.g. in compliance with the requirements of your school) up to a full-time position, or positions for credit, can be made if necessary.

We’re looking for a new intern who has writing experience and an interest in art/technology. The ideal intern will be great at finding new and useful content from around the web that would be of interest to the Harvestworks audience (e.g. new music, new media art, sound art, hacks, performance videos, new technologies and software, Internet culture, etc. …). The intern will then be in charge of daily blog posts, but will also have the opportunity to work on Harvestworks projects and performances.

Besides having excellent written English and a passion for art and technology, this intern should also have these qualities:

– Strong work ethic and loyalty
– Attention to detail
– Attention to project deadlines
– The ability to work both independently and as part of a team
– A flexible schedule

Work from distance is not a problem but we strongly encourage NY-based people to meet at Harvestworks and become part of the community.

We’d like the ideal candidate to write around 4 short posts per day (150-300 words). We will usually provide 2 links a day related to Harvestworks activities, but the candidate should and will be able to find their own material to write about. The blog will be the core of a wider social media strategy that will include all our other media platforms: Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Flickr, Tumblr.

Ideal writers should already be active on social media platforms. We are looking for writers who are willing to build on our existing platform to connect and grow their audience as they develop their personal and professional skills, learn about art and technology, and become part of a larger art community. Most importantly, their passion must show through!
