Spring 2021: Artsies Mentorship Program - Student Mentee/Writing Intern

Dec 16, 2020

Posted in: Internships & scholarships, Journalism internships

The Richmond Theatre Critics Circle has launched the Artsies Mentorship Program (AMP), to amplify marginalized voices in the local theatre community. 

Student mentees will be paid for their writing, published in a local media outlet, and their attendance to at least two local productions (probably from home--live-streamed or recorded) will also be covered. 

As a part of our quest for increased diversity and inclusive representation, the RTCC Pilot Mentorship Program is open to BIPOC college students in the Richmond, Virginia area, who are interested in learning the craft of arts criticism. RTCC Student Mentees will gain valuable experience and industry insight as well as free admittance to one or more Richmond productions (live or live-streamed), and the opportunity to work one-on-one with a professional theatre critic to have their work published on one of many local media websites.
