Call for Artists: Bloomberg Arts Internship Program Writing Coaches Deadline 3/19

Call for Artists: Bloomberg Arts Internship Program Writing Coaches  Deadline 3/19

Young Audiences is now hiring recent educators to be Writing Coaches in the Bloomberg Arts Internship Program, a fantastic program for rising Baltimore City seniors.  Over the course of seven weeks in the summer, students take on paid internships in arts and cultural organizations on three days and get professional development on two days. The PD includes support from writing coaches in completing their college essays and a resume and support from college mentors in selecting a school, figuring out how to pay for it, navigating the Common App and more! The position will be mostly remote but there will be some in-person activities, following all current Covid safety recommendations.

 

About: Writing coaches work collaboratively to build a curriculum that includes in-class writer’s workshops crafted to develop three finished pieces: a bio/cover letter, a resume, and the personal statement used for the college application. Workshops will help to build interns’ writing stamina and teach them the value of revision and persistence. They will be held accountable to finish their work because they will work in groups to provide and receive feedback. Central to the success of the writing component will be the regular writing practice that is required each week. Weekly blog posts create a routine that allows the students to develop writing skills in a safe and imaginative environment.
