Murmur Digital Storytelling Internship – Fall 2015

Murmur [http://murmurco.com] is a digital storytelling agency in NYC.

Murmur is currently working on a new way to tell journalism stories for mobile. They are seeking an intern from either the documentary or journalism fields, who is willing to conduct research on contemporary and historical events, and help write short entries about those events. This project is particularly interested in engaging readers in multiple POVs about these events.

For example, if you were in the shoes of Harry Truman, would you have dropped the bomb on Japan? There are two major perspectives on this issue, each backed up by evidence. This project will be examining both historical and contemporary news items in this way.

This is an unpaid internship with flexible hours for Fall 2015.

If interested, please contact Mike Knowlton at mike@murmurco.com
