Limelight Magazine is putting out a call for enthusiastic interns to come and work with the editorial team. Over the history of the publication, interns have been invited to gain experience in a professional arts media environment at Limelight. Currently, there are three staff members who started at the company as interns and many of our reviewers were interns at one point.

A typical internship at Limelight will see you taking on tasks including transcribing interviews with artists, researching and devising interview questions, content production and social media tasks, as well as other editing and writing tasks. Editorial interns are managed by the editorial team led by Limelight Editor Jo Litson. The team also includes Angus McPherson (Deputy Editor) and Justine Nguyen (Staff Writer) – and our Editor at Large Clive Paget in New York.

We’re looking for tertiary-level candidates with an interest and knowledge in classical music, opera, musicals, theatre and/or dance. Interns will preferably have an interest in a career in journalism or publishing, high level literacy skills and must be open to learning, be reliable and act in a responsible and professional manner.

Interns will be able to learn about and hone skills relating to digital and physical media production, writing and editing, interview and research, as well as gaining insights into working within a professional arts media environment. Interns are expected to be able to commit to one day per week in our office, up to a maximum of three months. This is an unpaid position. Our offices are located at 167 Macquarie Street, Sydney NSW 2000 (opposite the State Library of NSW).

To apply, contact with your CV and a cover letter addressing your interest in becoming an intern for Limelight.
