InDaily (Internship)

Journalist – INDAILY (Internship)

February 2016 – March 2016

Publication(s): http://www.indaily.com.au


 

InDaily, owned by Solstice Media, was South Australia’s only locally owned, independent source of digital news. During an internship at their Adelaide office, I produced a series of articles surrounding the 2016 Adelaide Fringe Festival.

I worked closely with the Art’s and Culture editor Suzie Keen to further my skills and experience while working with the team. To produce stories, I would work directly with publicists and public relations teams, interview comedians and performers, and attend events and shows as a press representative. Generally these interviews and performances took place outside of regular 9-5 work hours and taught me the importance of being available if a story breaks – even if that story was just a fridge show.
