I am excited to announce a new internship/volunteer opportunity to help build Kindling’s Timeline of Human Genius.
The Timeline catalogs milestones in humanity’s evolution – from the first fire to cities to space stations and beyond. You can filter the hundreds of Timeline entries by era, country, topic, and more. The Timeline helps us remember the incredible ingenuity and determination it has taken to get where we are now and imagine what the future might hold for us.
While at present each Timeline entry is simply a link to another website, the intern/volunteer will write short, original articles that live on the Kindling website. This will help frame each milestone within the context of humanity’s evolution and boost traffic to Kindling, deepening our impact.
Do you know anyone who might be interested in writing for Kindling?
