About the program

Students in the Critical Review and Student Liaison programs with interest or experience in writing, marketing and social media are invited to apply as a Student Publicist with a submission of required materials including: headshot, resume, writing prompts and supporting documentation (ex. photos, videos, paperwork, etc.) of their work. An interview and director references will be requested.

Working closely with Spotlight staff, a student publicist will create content and promote Spotlight Showcase and surrounding pre/post show events by being creative, self-starters, who work well under direction and timelines.
