The Charlotte Observer is seeking a paid reporting intern to cover the arts for online and print.

Applicants must have journalism writing experience, and a background or interest in the arts (any discipline), and be proficient or experienced in social media, reporting and producing videos and online publishing.
This position is made possible through a grant from the Knight Foundation and NEA, which is funding the Charlotte Arts Journalism Alliance, a consortium of local media dedicated to writing about the arts.
Interested applicants should submit a cover letter, resume and samples of their work to email@example.com. Put "arts internship" in the subject line. Finalists will be contacted in the coming weeks.
