Seeking a content specialist/blog writer

The Content Specialist position requires solid written communication skills and the ability to handle multiple projects and processes simultaneously. Possessing a strong attention to detail, the ideal candidate helps to develop a variety of stories for online publication. Position requires a candidate accomplished in AP style and competent in crafting messages in simple, active voice that meet readability standards for target audience. The specialist would also write blogs on a list of topics I have such as: Top 5 Downtown Charleston Art Galleries, How To’s and such. It would be 2-3 blog posts a week with pay per blog posts. I’d love your ideas on subjects to write about in relation to art in Charleston!

Job Functions

The Content Specialist performs the following essential functions:

  • Content development for marketing communications including website, social media, email, direct mail, marketing collateral, press releases, etc.

  • Proofreads all marketing materials, website content, and publications for accuracy, branding, and compliance.
  • Provides research as needed for use in market studies, project needs, and marketing and advertising publications.
  • Performs other writing duties as assigned

It is a paid per-blog-posting position – we can chat more about that. Feel free to email me for more details: morgancoleart@gmail.com

I live and work out of Charleston, SC but since its blog posts applicants can work remote – so it would be a super easy job to add on to your class schedule.

Lulie Wallace Studio Seeks 2 Fall Interns

By Cassandra P. Foster
Posted on 20 July 2018 | 1:42 pm — 

Seeking 2 interns for the fall semester

Type of Organization: Fine Art / Small Business

Supervisor Name, Title: Brooke Atwood, Studio Assistant

Supervisor Email: hello@luliewallace.com

Organization Website: www.luliewallace.com

Internship Position Title: Studio Intern

Internship Classification: Unpaid

Internship Description

I am a visual artist, fabric designer and surface designer. Along with having a fabric line and painting, I design patterns to be licensed out to different companies for different products. In the past, I have worked with companies like Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, and One Kings Lane in similar partnerships.

My work is heavily social media based. Most of my purchasers have found out about my work through social media, therefor it is a large priority for the intern on a daily basis!

He/she would fulfill and ship orders right out of my studio at the Cigar Factory and manage the back end of my online website. They would keep inventory of supplies and work with clients directly if there are any issues with orders. I use Shopify to run my store, and I think it would be a great program for students to learn to navigate!

Most importantly, I think the intern would be encouraged and could see what it looks like if you wanted to make producing artwork into a career. The only people I came in contact with that were making a living as an artist were my teachers. I hope to show the intern the multiple ways you can make a job out of being a creative!

-Lulie Wallace

 

Qualifications/Skills Required

Hard working, self motivated, organized, deep interest for art and works well with others! We work in a community at the Cigar Factory, so they would need to get along well with others!
