BOLIVIA / Bolivian Express
What does the Bolivian Express involve?
You will spend one or two months of your summer July-August) in Bolivia working for a new English-language newspaper published by Express Press, a Bolivian publishing house responsible for two proclassminent magazines distributed nationally and internationally. During this time you will have a chance to work alongside experienced professionals and gain first-hand experience learning the tricks of the trade. You can also register for tuition in all areas by practitioners and experts from each field. Spanish lessons are also provided for speakers at all levels. Flexible working arrangements encourage you to travel in the country to gather material and help us make business deals. Whatever you decide to do, the team will help you make the most of your stay.
Is this right for you?
We are looking for writers, photographers, designers, as well as people interested in marketing and the business side of things. Whether you’re leaving sixth-form, planning your gap year, a languages student planning your year abroad, or simply someone looking for something to do over the summer, this could be just the thing for you. Some experience is valuable but what is most important is a genuine interest in journalism, publishing or marketing, as well as curiosity for Bolivia and everything it has to offer. Work will be assigned in line with your level of experience; you will be challenged but you will get all the help you need along the way.
