Job opportunity for Civic Park residents: Tell your story through paid journalism fellowship

FLINT, Michigan—Do you know a Civic Park resident who wants to report on their community, raise awareness about an issue, or with a story to share? 

Flintside will launch a journalism fellowship this month with a limited number of openings. As part of the ongoing On the Ground project in Civic Park, community members are invited to participate in paid training to research, report, and produce a story idea of their own to be published in Flintside. 

The fellowship includes four training sessions. Participants will be equipped with a Chromebook, a direct mentorship with Flintside managing editor Marjory Raymer, and $100 payment per training session plus payment when their article or multimedia project is published. 

Civic Park neighborhood is one of several in Flint where a combination of forces — including the determination of residents, investments from local foundations, and community partners — are working together to push toward recovery.

After the conclusion of the fellowship, participants are invited to continue contributing to Flintside as freelancers.
