It’s that time again! Calling all aspiring golf writers.

Golfweek.com is now accepting submissions for its National College Writing Contest, which will award Summer 2012 internships to college journalists across the country.

What’s at stake?: As an editorial intern, winning students will serve as contributing writers to Golfweek.com. Specifically, interns will be responsible for writing features and news stories focused on junior- and amateur-level golf across the country during the summer of 2012.

Who can enter?: Ideal candidates are journalism/communications students with backgrounds in newspaper, magazine or online sports reporting. Strong copy-editing skills and knowledge of golf and AP Style are a must, as is the ability to think creatively and generate story ideas.

Students across the country are eligible to apply and relocation is not necessary, as duties may be performed remotely. Internship duties would take up roughly 10-12 hours per week and scheduling is very flexible.

How to enter?: The theme for this year’s contest is “Your ideal round of golf.” Candidates should provide an original, thoughtful essay (less than 800 words) describing their best round of golf (real or fictional).

In addition to your submission, please include a resume with references and up to three other writing samples. Entries are due to Jackie Strouse ([email protected]) by May 10, 2012.
