Internship Opportunities with Music Lifestyle Blog, Turn the Record Over

Turn The Record Over is a music, arts and culture blog based out of Toronto that is quickly becoming a resource for exploring the local arts and music scene. It regularly features reviews, videos, link round ups, interviews, song spotlights, mixtapes, quotes and more. While the focus is currently Toronto, plans to expand into different cities are in the works. The blog aims to entertain fans of indie music and culture, provide insight and inspiration, and educate musicians and artists in how to better market themselves and their work through online channels. 

Turn the Record Over is looking for a few interns / assistants who can dedicate a few hours a week for at least 6 months towards helping with admin tasks related to the blog, as well as writing, photography and research if the applicant is interested in such tasks.
