EDITORIAL INTERNS

We are currently accepting applications for Spring 2020.

We hire editorial interns on a rotating basis throughout the year, and are constantly on the hunt for bright, diligent and ambitious applicants.

The internship is paid, and we offer college credit to enrolled students who request it. We try to be flexible with student schedules during the academic year.

We train, but expect our interns to hit the ground running. Duties include fact-checking articles, assisting editors with research and reporting, and writing web stories and short print pieces. We expect and encourage interns to be a part of the team by contributing their own ideas, attending meetings and getting to know the editorial staff.

Successful candidates will be detail-oriented, responsible, well-read, curious and knowledgeable about the city. We prefer journalism, communications, English and history students, particularly those who are active with campus publications and are interested in a career in journalism.

Start and end dates vary with the needs and flexibility of the magazine, but generally we hire new interns for three seasonal terms (May–August, September–December and January–April). Please note in your cover letter for which term you are applying and your availability to work during the week.

Compensation: $8.46 per hour
