Intern – Creative Writing

PART TIME/Fargo or Duluth

So you wanna be a Flintern?

You’ve already tried lead singer, stand-up comic, auctioneer, screen writer, bartender, and now you’re ready to use your words to help people fall in love with brands. Not gonna lie, we’re pretty excited about that. There’s just something we need to know first: WHY do you want to be a writer?

Show us your perspective on Flint

Tell us why you want to score a summer Flinternship by creating an ad for yourself. Could be a well-worded poem or a song, could be a super killer headline sketched out over a stick figure of yourself on a napkin, could be a video of showing us handy hacks you’ve acquired in college. Show us how you can use words and creativity to sell yourself. Ready, set, go. Also any other writing samples you already have would be great to see, too.
