Editing Internships & Positions
Do you love editing and helping students grow in their writing skills? Do you enjoy Oregon sports? We are hiring interns and volunteers to help us edit for three hours a week and while we are looking for editors with experience in sports journalism, it is your passion and skills that are more important than your field of study. Editors can still be in college, although typically they have graduated and help us from such places as the northern mountains of Idaho, or from sunny Southern California. This website allows you to edit and contribute from anywhere in the world! The writing interns who you would be helping are lead authors of articles that will be published by FishDuck.com, and read by thousands daily. Our current UO student writers have published articles that have been linked to by ESPN Regional, The Bleacher Report, and newspapers such as The Oregonian, giving their work broad exposure while boosting their resume’ and yours.
Editors can take heart knowing they will just be editing and no fact checking as we hold the writers accountable for what they research and write.
“Writing for FishDuck.com has accelerated my sports writing career in so many ways, giving me vast amounts of experience and adding to my resume by linking my articles to prestigious sites such as ESPN Regional.” —Joseph F. Holland, UO Student
“My experience at FishDuck.com has greatly expanded my opportunities in the sports journalism industry. With the reputation FishDuck has earned with the biggest media outlets, promoting my work was easy, and directly led to me other internships and writing jobs.” —Josh Schlichter, UO Student
For the Non-Students or Retired? For those who LIKE to edit and help student writers…this is right up your alley for one night a week of three hours. Our Editors retain the quality of the site while being “Writing Coaches” to the youth; this can be very satisfying work!
