Are you a Communication Studies student at UNB Saint John? Are you eligible to submit a COMx project for a percentage of your final grade? Consider completing an internship at The Lorenzo Review! Our creator, Jessica Raven, and Lorenzo Society coordinator Andrea Kikuchi are eager to teach you the ins-and-outs of working for a publication, even during COVID-19, and getting you an awesome grade in your class. For more information, please speak to your respective Communication Studies professor. At the moment, The Lorenzo Review is searching for:
Are you passionate about writing, performing, filmmaking, photography, etc? Do you want a place to feature the content that you create? Become a content contributor! We welcome any and all content (as long as the intention is not to bring harm to and/or hurt anyone. If content is deemed to be offensive in any way by our editors, it will be rejected). Students interested in this position will be asked to produce content of their choice biweekly. Example content would be book reviews of the books featured in the Lorenzo@Home series this year.
Are you interested in the Lorenzo Reading Series (i.e. Lorenzo@Home as of 2020-2021)? Do you want the chance to speak with authors, musicians, and/or patrons? Would you like to learn more about journalistic reporting and writing? Then being an event reporter and/or interviewer is the job for you.
Students who choose this position will be asked to attend as many Lorenzo Society events as their schedule allows and to write articles recapping the events which adhere to the Canadian Press Stylebook, and/or to conduct interviews (Q&A style or formally) with featured authors. [NOTE: contact information can be provided should the student wish to conduct an interview prior to the event, as the number of people able to participate in events on Teams is limited.] If you don’t have prior experience with journalistic writing and/or the Canadian Press Stylebook, don’t worry! Jessica Raven, creator of The Lorenzo Review, has copy-editing experience and is happy to teach you everything that you need to know via Teams, Zoom, or email. It sounds intimidating but is actually quite simple.
Do you love taking photos? Are you looking to practice and improve your skills? Consider becoming a photographer for your internship! We will accept creative photography of just about anything, so long as it is not deemed to be in any way offensive or harmful. For examples of past photography content, click here.
Students interested in obtaining a COMx internship with The Lorenzo Review must email Jessica and/or Andrea to discuss what role they would like to perform by the deadline given to you by your instructor. Once a role has been agreed upon, you must confirm with them to ensure you get course credit.
Should any of these positions be of interest to students not eligible for a COMx internship, consider discussing internship opportunities with your professors in other faculties or join our team as a regular contributor! [NOTE: At this early stage, funding is not available to pay contributors, but we welcome anyone looking for publishing credits to include in their CV. In lieu of this, we do allow contributors to submit work published with us to other publications, as well.]
