What We Offer to Our Fellows – A Unique Opportunity for Enterprising Minds

Atlantic Media currently seeks 5-10 exceptional or aspiring writers, editors and other online media talents to join our team in a focused effort to launch, research, write and edit new websites. Fellows will help conceive new web concepts, develop their structure, design and voice, and complete the daily operations of the publications, such as writing and editing, once launched. This is website creation from first to last.

Candidates should be current students or recent graduates of undergraduate or graduate programs. Fellowship will run from September 2008 through May 2009; all candidates are expected to commit to the entire duration. Fellows will be compensated $30,000-$40,000 (depending on experience) for the nine-month appointment. There is some prospect, but no certainty, that fellows may be offered full-time employment with Atlantic Media following the fellowship.
