Apply Now to Be the Next Editor of Streetsblog LITE

Two weeks from now, Streetsblog LITE, our new Tumblr website, will be without an editor as Veronica Hernandez leaves us to resume her higher education at Smith University. Veronica brought a healthy dose of humor, planning knowlege with a keen eye for current events. We’ve been trying to pretend that she wasn’t really leaving,

But now we can’t hide from the truth any longer and we’re looking for new volunteers to help us manage Streetsblog Lite.  The perfect candidate will have a knowledge of bicycling and urban planning issues, be able to work creatively without too much supervision, and have at least some knowledge of how tumblr works.

This is a perfect chance for students of any age to get some experience working with a news organization on a social media project. While we can’t offer any cash, at least at this point, we are willing to help you with any transportation or journalism projects you’re working on at the moment and talk to your teachers about getting college credits.

If you’re interested, please contact damien at streetsblog dot org and we’ll set up a time to chat.
