The summer is winding down, and several of our wonderful interns are heading back to college, which means Mama Brokelyn is looking for some new blood. If you’re an underemployed journalist, recent graduate or career changer (but for the love of G-d choose a different one) and you’re willing to spend at least two days a week devoting yourself to the high art of frugality, please send a resume and cover letter to email@example.com, along with two to three writing samples.
