Publishing - Music Assistant Editor – 2022 Winter/Spring INTERNSHIP

"Some educational institutions require prior approval before the start of an internship. It is the responsibility of the student to check with their institution to be sure they meet any requirements before they accept a position."

During the Pandemic- your job will be to comb through the exploding number of online music events to cull for best-match review and previews content. You can work across music genre or concentrate on one or more you select.


Amy Munice, Editor in Chief, will be the primary supervisor of your internship. She is the co-publisher of the magazine, a 30+ year PR professional and freelance journalist, and cultural reporter who has penned many hundreds of articles. She will be the author of your future reference for job hunting purposes.

You will be responsible for keeping a to-do list updated in real time, and a cumulative report- -which if possible, we would prefer you also share with your school internship supervisor.

Training sessions are held by zoom—usually in small groups—throughout the week and weekend. Initially you will need to adapt your schedule in order to attend training sessions for your role in the soonest possible timeframe. Once you have the prerequisite skills, you determine your schedule each week in order to meet your school’s hour requirements for your internship.

Picture This Post is an entirely volunteer organization, from top to bottom. We are a not-for-profit (as opposed to a 501c3 non-profit) – too small to hire accountants etc. needed for non-profit status. Students are like all volunteers EXCEPT that much time/energy goes into training students and helping you develop a portfolio for future job hunting.  


After the pandemic- your efforts will move to covering live performance events.

You will learn how to edit promotional press releases into journalistic format. Great emphasis is made on teaching difference between fact and opinion- and how to use attributions. You can also learn how to do q/a interviews.

You are also invited to write 1+ reviews in music or other sections- -learning how to write in PICTURE THIS style.
Please look at all the sections of our magazine and tell us which ones you are especially interested in and whether you want to focus on social media, writing or both. 

Please write to if you would like to see our writer's guidelines.
Hours flexible 10+ per week. (Plus 10+ hours if writing training is desired).

Amy Munice, your supervisor and editor in chief, will work with your academic internship supervisor to ensure you receive academic credit. You are responsible for collecting information on all the pre-requisites for this credit - -hours, etc. -- and forwarding the details so that your academic credit is assured.
