Calling all college students: Have you ever thought it would be fun to be a food writer or restaurant critic? It is! And SF Weekly will help you get your foot in the door and clips under your belt with a summer internship.

As an intern, you'll get to know the S.F. food scene through collecting info, interviewing chefs and food producers, and attending events. You'll also learn how to develop and pitch stories, work under tight deadlines, edit photos, and advance your writing skills -- all items written will be subject to feedback, editing, and rewrites.

Eventually it could lead to a paid freelance gig for print and online. Writers contribute some photographs as well, so it's a big plus if you're good at that, even if it's with your smartphone.

The internship requires 12 to 15 hours per week and you must be enrolled in a college internship program or can receive credit for your work to qualify.

If you think you got what it takes, e-mail our food editor, Anna Roth, at anna.roth [at] sfweekly [dot] com. Please include links to relevant clips.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
