Seeking Podcasting Intern: Sundress Academy for the Arts

In March 2014, The Sundress Academy for the Arts (SAFTA) launched its first podcast, The SAFTAcast. What makes The SAFTAcast unique is that it does not focus on a guest’s creative work. Instead, the emphasis is on the creators themselves, not their creations. The show is not about promotion or craft, but rather getting to know the people who write, edit, and/or publish stuff on a personal level. The position will run from July to December 2016 with a chance to be renewed for spring/summer 2017.
The intern’s responsibilities will include writing and sending press releases, helping to run social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Wordpress, etc.), networking with other blogs and podcasts, and reviewing back episodes for future projects. The intern may also assist with creating SAFTAcast audio tracks, writing copy, and promoting other Sundress projects and SAFTA events.
Qualifications include:
-Strong written communication skills 
-Familiarity with social media and online promotion
-A passion for contemporary literature
Knowledge of contemporary podcasting and audio production/editing a plus, but not required.
Applicants are welcome to telecommunicate and therefore are not restricted to living in the South Florida area (where The SAFTAcast is located).
While this is an unpaid internship, all interns will gain real-world experience in working with, and designing promotional materials for, a nationally recognized press while creating a portfolio of work for future employment opportunities. Interns will also be able to attend workshops at the Sundress Academy for the Arts at cost.
To apply, please send a resume and a brief cover letter detailing your interest in the position to the show host, Scott “C” Fynboe, at:
saftacastATgmailDOTcom (Change AT to @ and DOT to . )
Applications are taken on a rolling basis.
