|Number of Interns||50|
In this project, as a content creator, you will work with Operation SongTM, a nonprofit organization based in Tennessee that uses musical therapy to help Veterans. Through this partnership, interns create blog posts highlighting Veterans who have written songs through the organization. Operating Song Writing Interns will contact and interview Veterans who have used musical therapy through the nonprofit organization. Interns will tell these stories via blog posts.
You may be asked, also, to reach out to providers of other forms of therapy to write about the Veterans that they treat. The core of this project is to tell the stories of Veterans who have benefited from various forms of treatment. Your efforts will help to show other Veterans the progress and improvements can be made through these amazing treatment opportunities.
Please view our blog to see the various written content our team produces. Be sure to note the level of quality and the style of writing of those posts. If you are selected for this internship, this is the level of work you will be expected to produce.
Writings are expected to adhere to AP Style and VA’s style. Our communication work is a representation of the VA as a whole. Publishing accurate, quality work is one of our team’s most important obligations, so we are looking for people who are willing to contribute to this team goal.
