Paid fall reporting internships at Bronx papers

Norwood News, Mount Hope Monitor and Highbridge Horizon -- biweekly newspapers in the Bronx -- are seeking interns for the fall and possibly beyond.

"We rely heavily on contributions from our interns," the ad says. "You will not be pushing papers or making coffee. You will be writing serious news stories and other feature articles in a fascinating urban environment. It’s an opportunity to grow as a journalist and improve your reporting/writing skills on every level, while having an impact on a diverse and developing community."

Interns are asked to take photos as well, but experience isn't necessary. They will be paid a small fee per article and/or photograph that is published. College students, graduate students and aspiring journalists are all invited to apply.
