Since Safer at Home orders went into place across the state, the Palisadian-Post has been assembled out of the office—but the paper has continued to be delivered and available in stands each and every Thursday.
This summer, the Post welcomes two interns who will assist in producing the paper by providing editorial support through stories and editing. Though, for the time being, they will not be in the newsroom, they will both be joining Zoom editorial meetings, conducting interviews and helping proofread pages.
My name is Amelia Ortiz, I am a sophomore at Crossroads School and can’t wait to intern with the Palisadian-Post this summer!
I am a writer for Crossroads’ newspaper, Crossfire, and have a great passion for journalism. I have lived in the Palisades my entire life and grew up watching my dad read the Palisadian-Post as he drank his coffee almost every morning.
I feel so lucky to have been raised in the Palisades and hope that my contribution to the Palisadian-Post will give something back to the community that gave me so much. I am looking forward to bringing my unique voice and passionate writing to the paper.
I believe I will provide a fresh perspective to the paper as a teenager, and to encourage teen readership and engagement. I hope to use this opportunity to not only grow as a writer, but to form a deeper connection with my neighborhood.
Hi, my name is Jenna Siteman and I’m a new intern for the Palisadian-Post. I’m a journalism student at the University of Michigan going into my junior year, and I work for my school newspaper as a crime and investigative reporter.
My passion for reporting stems from a yearning to communicate the truth as clearly as possible. I enjoy focusing on human-interest, mental health and criminal justice-based stories, though I very much look forward to covering more community events in this role.
My career goals encompass reporting in many fields, but I have a special interest in foreign news coverage as well as documentary news. I currently hold a Fellowship with VICE Media where I’m creating a piece about mental health in the Reserve Officer Training Corp at universities across the country.
Additionally, my most recent project has been producing a podcast called Letters From Cooper Street, which is based on a volunteer experience I had in a Michigan Prison.
In my free time I sculpt and throw pottery, write, read and I’m currently training for a marathon.
Despite the hardships that we are all facing of late, I look forward to working with the community and continuing to uphold the high-quality reporting that the Post always provides.
