Brownstoner is looking for a summer intern to help with social media (Pinterest), write events posts twice weekly, and write occasional stories on real estate and development in Brooklyn. There is potential to cover evening community board meetings and other news. The ideal candidate would have published writing samples, the ability to turn in relatively clean copy, and an interest in Brooklyn and real estate. Living in Brooklyn is a must. A bike, camera and WordPress experience is also helpful. If interested, please email a paragraph about yourself and links to clips to cate at brownstoner dot com.
