“for all those who believe the pen is mightier than the sword….”
a month long virtual internship aimed at bringing out the quirky, witty and best in you.
WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE DO
ED is a generalist youth blog with some quirky bloggers who believe in doing smart and intelligent stories spiced with some humour, sarcasm and spunk.
It’s where you find Wit with Wisdom. We never do just a regular blog post. We rack our brains hard enough to come up with novel, crazy and fun ways of bringing a story to you; with styles never been done before.
WHAT WINTERNSHIP IS ALL ABOUT
WINTERNSHIP is ED’s flagship one month blogging and digital marketing internship program, which aims to provide enthusiastic learners a platform to observe and report, write and blog.
Interns work from the comfort of their homes, wrapped in a cozy blanket with a mug of piping hot tea.
The Super 30 (30 selected interns) have a shot at covering anything within the span of 10 articles over the period of one month and live the life of an ED Blogger, who blogs and does cool social tasks.
THE ED WINTERNSHIP EXPERIENCE
We kick off on 13th Feb, after a 1 day orientation (euphemism for meet, greet, chill and tweet) and for the next 30 days – become your foster family.
ED never sleeps, ever… you can find someone of our team up at all times of the day. Tweeting live from an event, representing the blog at forums like Jaipur Literature Festival and posing for selfies with Ranbir and Deepika are all part of your job profile (if you get lucky)!
We also have one crazy digital task a week – and as an EDite, you’ll be doing that too.
Sitting in your room, wrapped in a blanket.
