Metro Media Publishing is seeking strictly third-year and Honours journalism students who are interested in completing a minimum two-week placement at one of its publications.

The internship will be located at the MMP offices in South Melbourne.

MMP publishes The Weekly Review, which is a free magazine-news publication distributed across much of Melbourne and is half owned by Fairfax Media.

For an example of one of Metro Media Publishing’s websites see: www.theweeklyreviewstonnington.com.au.

Successful applicants will be expected to draw on the journalism skills and attributes they have required so far in order to help them pitch news stories, do interviews, organise photographs and write up their stories worthy of publication in print and online.

MMP looks to help those on placement by developing their writing skills and fine-tuning their news value sense.

It is crucial that applicants are available for a minimum of two weeks in order to ensure they can get the most out of the opportunity with MMP. Students must also ensure they are able to organise insurance independtly through their university.

For more information, or to apply for placement, email MMP’s News Editor Gordon Farrer (gfarrer@mmpgroup.com.au).
