The Miami County Republic, a community newspaper based in Paola, Kansas, is currently accepting applications for a paid summer internship. The internship will last about 8 to 10 weeks, depending on the reporter's available start and end time, and will include a variety of responsibilities for our weekly paper, including taking photographs, covering meetings, writing features, copy editing and reporting and collecting information during the Miami County Fair. The internship typically starts near the end of May and continues into the first part of August. The internship pays $10 an hour, and the summer intern will be required to work 40-hour weeks, with some events taking place in the evening and on weekends. The intern is not required to live in Miami County for the summer, but its does help to provide a better experience. This is a great opportunity to experience what it is like to be a reporter for a small-town newspaper and generate some fantastic clips for your portfolio. We ask that all applicants submit their resume, cover letter and any writing samples they may have to Editor/Publisher Brian McCauley at brian.mccauley@miconews.com. The application deadline is March 31, and interviews will be conducted in April. To learn more about The Miami County Republic, visit us online at www.republic-online.com.
