Description

Let’s talk:
Here at www.WisconsinLCNews.com, we’re thinking big, and we want to bring you in on it. We’re offering internships for summer 2020. The hands-on internships will not only give you a chance to practice your Spanish with native speakers but also an opportunity to roll up your sleeves and write, take photos, shoot videos, translate, report on local news stories and investigative reporting on controversial issues affecting the Latino community at a rigorous pace. We’re a biweekly publication now, preparing to go weekly next year.

This is you:
You are as comfortable telling stories with a notepad as you are with a camera or smartphone. Arts, Culture, News, sports, features, you are up for anything. You know your skills are going to take you places but you need a place to start.

This is us:
We’re that place. www.WisconsinLCNews.com is aiming to be ground zero for the spread of news community journalism. We’re holding tight to the core mission that has served us well for the past twenty five years, local news coverage, watchdog investigative work, in-depth coverage and colorful writing. But we’re busy throwing everything else out the window. Be prepared to work with whip-smart folks who are ready to change things up. Quick-hit web updates and slow, simmering long-form work are becoming the norm.

So what now?
Dazzle us, but don’t overwhelm us. Spanish helpful but not required. Get a few clips of your stories, translations and a short resume to: Dane Viscarra publisher@wisclatinonews.com.
