Attention all Jewish college students who love to write: After two years of our Alma College Ambassador program, we are excited to announce a new opportunity for Jewish college students to become an Alma College Writing Fellow for 2020-2021.
We’re looking for a small group of Jewish undergraduate students to join our team for the upcoming school year who are eager to learn more about digital publishing and writing for the internet. All self-identifying Jews of any level of religious observance/non-observance are welcome to apply (i.e. it’s okay if you haven’t “done anything Jewish” since your bat mitzvah, or if you never even had a bat mitzvah).
This will be a remote program where you’ll be in regular contact with our editorial team. As a College Writing Fellow, you’ll be part of a sounding board for the Alma editorial team, connect with other Jewish college students in a warm, supportive environment, and have the opportunity to pitch and write for Alma!
This is a non-paid position, but fellows will be paid standard rates for every published article.
To apply, follow this link. Submit your application by August 10.
You will be asked to upload a file answering the following questions:
(1) Pitch two Alma articles you’d like to write for us (following our writing guidelines here). Please make this a one paragraph pitch, including a suggested headline and subhead.
(2) What does your Jewish identity mean to you? (500 words) (Understand “identity” however you’d like.)
(3) Share a piece of writing you are proud of, either as a link if it is published or attached in the doc (try to keep it in the 1,000-word ballpark).
Feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
