Description

We are Utopiat: a concept for communal revolution to unite those who refuse to be defined by current worldly illusions, who are fearlessly manifesting their very own fairytales into reality. We are both creators and curators of information, inspiration, and products surrounding the Utopiat lifestyle — a lifestyle that is lived intentionally, holistically, and beautifully.

Utopiat is a premier online source of information for people who share that vision and want to live in a more sustainable, truthful world. While currently being centralized around our original, sustainable clothing lines under the Hudiefly brand, Utopiat covers topics from all aspects of life. We are seeking a team of journalists to conduct thorough investigations into various topics using internet and on-the-ground research methods. The research will be compiled into original, thoughtfully-written articles to be published on the Utopiat website.

Responsibilities

Original, detailed journalistic articles (not curated from other sources) will be written by Utopiat journalism interns. In particular, an area we are focusing on is sustainable fashion, eco-fiber technology and unethical fashion manufacturing exposés. Good examples of the kind of writing we are looking for can be found here: https://news.vice.com/article/three-years-after-a-factory-collapse-killed-1130-workers-this-brand-is-still-making-clothes-in-bangladesh

Articles will be submitted to editing staff and eventually published if the content is satisfactory. In such cases, compensation will be provided at a rate of 5 cents per word.

Requirements

A strong commitment to the Utopiat ethos is most essential. The intern's role in the company will be commensurate with their passion for the cause: creative-minded individuals who fully internalize the company's goal for a more sustainable and ethical future will be better able to articulate this through their written content. Experience with journalistic writing is preferred; however, we do not require a specific major of study or job experience. Suitability of the applicant's writing will be verified with the inclusion of 1-2 writing samples.
