Bill Densmore asked that I post this:

The New England News Forum, a grant-funded research project of Prof. Norm Sims, managed by Bill Densmore and Meredith McCulloch, has a work-study position available for a UMass undergraduate journalism student.

Work up to 10 hours a week making updates to the NENF website, and writing short blog posts on New England media issues plus finding, writing and maintaining calendar items. You may also be asked to write an occasional long-form story. One or two trips per semester to events in New England may be possible.

Opportunity is for fall semester; if you perform well the opportunity may reopen for the spring semester. To apply, email with a short bio. Include phone contact information and a statement of why you’re interested and why you’ll do an excellent job. Study the website before replying, please.
