Global Sports Journalism Internship (Online)
Sportskeeda’s global sports journalism internship is a comprehensive program designed to help amateur writers and budding columnists hone their writing skills and learn the art of sports writing from the best in the business. It provides budding writers an opportunity to have their work published alongside that of reputed journalists and seasoned writers, and gives them a platform to reach out to a wide audience.
How does the program work?
- - Each intern will be managed by a designated editor who will act as a mentor throughout the duration of the program.
- - The interns will undergo training for 2 months during which they will have to write a minimum of 20 articles.
- - The program is carefully divided into three phases:
- - Phase #1: In this phase, the interns are free to explore topics of their own, thus expressing themselves and proving their worth while working within their comfort zone.
- - Phase #2: In this phase, various projects will be assigned by the designated editor, including feature articles or “on-call” duty to report breaking news, thus testing the intern’s ability to excel outside his or her comfort zone and deliver quality articles on time.
- - Phase #3: In this phase, the intern’s development through the program will be tested, by evaluating the ‘signature articles’ that he or she comes up with.
- - The interns will be given regular feedback on their strengths and weaknesses by the designated editors who will monitor them closely.
