Intern for -- Posted Nov. 5, 2018

The intern program would provide an opportunity for a student to receive experience in writing for publication. The focus for the spring semester will be on would be on the University of Wyoming football/basketball/wrestling programs, but not limited to that.

With the understanding that the student would be available for 150 hours during the 15 weeks of a semester, the anticipation would be three or four stories a week. 

This would not be actual game story coverage. With the modern media the scores, stats and such are available on many outlets. At the focus is on presenting that next look at the current sporting world.

The anticipation during basketball season would be a follow story the day after a home game for the women and men that would focus on a certain aspect of team play or on an individual player or coach.

Ina addition, there would be two other stories during the week that could deal with basketball but could be on any of the sports in season.

After the basketball season concludes the spring football season will start. Each week the idea would be at least two stories on the football team (more if merited), keeping an eye open for one or two stories a week with the other in-season sports, depending on how many football stories are written.

Each story should be at least 600 words. The ultimate length would be up to the writer.

We are looking for something that is unique, which will give readers a reason to come to our site.
