Glimpse Correspondents Program- Spring 2012
Travel Writing (PAID)

The Glimpse Correspondents Program is an opportunity for writers and photographers who will be living abroad in 2012 to have their work published and recognized in nationally renowned publications. Correspondents receive critical feedback on their writing and photography and develop a portfolio of highly accomplished work. Critically, at a time when many opportunities for emerging writers do not pay, Glimpse Correspondents receive a $600 stipend.

Previous correspondents have gone on to develop their stories into books, become professional journalists, enter MFA programs, and graduate from some of the country’s top universities.

In the past year we’ve published stories about the journeys undertaken by North Korean defectors, day to day life in a South African township, struggles of the African-American diaspora in in Uganda, and the tenuous hope of post-Communist Poland as discovered by a burgeoning club star.

For more information about the program, including specific dates and requirements, please visit http://glimpse.org/the-correspondents-program/

You can also access the application directly on the Glimpse website: http://glimpse.org/application/
Deadline to apply is December 20.

Communication Arts Network (C.A.N.) is involved in all forms of marketing services for its clients, including campaign strategy, public relations, advertising, graphic design, social media, website construction, publishing (we’ve even served as book editor/consultant to past ASU college
deans)and more.

The firm was incorporated in 1987 as American Computer Publishing Inc. and was one of the first firms in Phoenix to use Macintosh computers for publishing and marketing projects. We’re much like a full-service ad agency, but quite unconventional in our approach. We focus on fascinating projects for clients like the Scottsdale Gallery Association, handling them from our “Scottsdale C.A.N.®” headquarters and fostering collaboration or cross-promotion between many factions in a concentrated area via our new Up With Downtown® concept. One example of our client work is the website www.ScottsdaleGalleries.com which we manage for the Scottsdale Arts District to promo its many activities. While our firm has a strong niche in entertainment and the arts, we also work with business, civic and nonprofit clients of every kind.
Internship Description:
C.A.N. is hoping to find a part-time intern or subcontractor who has communication skills and marketing interests, especially as they might relate to the business of music and the arts. The person we’re looking for need not have an arts, marketing or music background; their smarts, versatility,
communication skills, personality, energy and interest in the arts & entertainment business are more paramount. Some of the work can be done at home using a computer and internet connection. Tasks will involve computing, emailing, social media marketing, sponsorship development and customer
relations. Customers may include communities, festivals, artists, musicians, art galleries and others.

C.A.N. would prefer someone with a couple years of college, but we’d value other maturity attributes or life experiences as well. College majors relevant to our projects as described above could be business, arts, music, arts management, communications (P.R.), marketing or journalism, but a “generalist” is also appreciated because we do so many different things.

Internship Details:
Based on experience, there will be extremely modest hourly pay for the intern, augmented by potentially rewarding commissions, but we’d emphasize the value of the entrepreneurial learning experience above all else because we’re a unique, diversified firm with a mentoring demeanor and we’re involved in fun-but-relevant projects. Our needs fluctuate depending on workload, and we’re also flexible about meshing with a talented helper’s own schedule (such as school and other part time jobs), but can typically offer 12 to 20 hours of work per week. The hours can vary, though some key times will be required, such as during events we coordinate. At the moment, 90% of our work is in the East Valley or downtown Phoenix, so logistics may be important. A part-time
internship position is available immediately. There are excellent prospects for the right intern to continue as a part-timer in the future as well.
