Internships at Kudzu

Kudzu is a monthly newsletter geared towards student activists at Christian schools. This monthly publication from Soulforce is looking to fill the void of news relating to LGBTQ issues, race, gender, and radical student activism on campuses.

We are looking for folks who are innovative, flexible, and excited about pioneering a new project that would connect student activists from Christian campuses across the nation. Current students are preferred but recent alumni are also welcome to apply. No previous professional writing experience necessary. Meeting deadlines is essential.

*Internship positions are unpaid; however, Soulforce will provide a fund of $250 for either:

  1. An event, class, or workshop where you can gain more skills for yourself as a journalist/artist.

  2. To use and do field journalism on a story of your choice relating to Christianity, Christian college campuses, systemic oppression, or spiritual resilience.
