Are you a college junior or senior looking for hands on experience in local journalism? You’ve come to the right place.

About Us: Eculeus Group Publishing is the Valley’s largest locally-owned publisher of hyperlocal newspapers. What does hyperlocal mean? It means we bring the news that is important to a community; what matters to the residents in their bubble of our great Valley. Growing from one to six publications in under five years has been a rollercoaster of a ride, but with the amazing support of not only local businesses but the residents of the communities we represent, we couldn’t be happier. It is our honor to reciprocate that support by helping businesses grow and prosper by spreading their message through our direct mail to 120,000+ homes and businesses each month, our social media reach and our website, www.myhyperlocalnews.com.

About You: You’re a college junior or senior majoring in journalism. You have an interest in local news and you know that print isn’t dead, it’s just evolving. You need college credit and are happy to work from home on a flexible schedule.

What You’ll Do: We’re a small team with big goals and a solid work ethic. We’re happy to tailor this internship to you, but we’re interested in someone who can write regular quality news articles for our six hyperlocal newspapers – this includes interviewing local sources, collecting images, and meeting deadlines.

Expectations: We’re flexible and you’ll be telecommuting, but we’re happy to meet in-person as needed (of course!). We expect you to meet deadlines, keep in touch regularly, and to reach out if you need anything.

What’s Next?: E-mail our editor Shelly at news@egpublishing.com with your resume and writing samples. We’re looking for someone to start in Spring 2022.
