Spring 2018: Richmond Magazine - Editorial Intern (Deadline Dec. 23)
Dec 6, 2017
Posted in: Internships & scholarships, Journalism internships
Richmond magazine accepts applications for unpaid editorial, marketing and photo internships in the spring (January through May), summer (June through August) and fall (September through December). All interns must receive credit from their school for the internship. The deadline for spring applications is Dec. 23, summer applications are due May 1 and fall applications are due Aug. 25.
This is a great opportunity to go "behind the scenes" at a magazine while doing a little bit of everything, from writing short features, researching and fact checking to helping out with photo shoots and events. Internships are not paid; we require that interns receive academic credit from their degree-granting institutions. Interns also are acknowledged on the magazine's masthead, and we try to make sure that all of our interns leave with several published clips for their portfolios.
Qualifications: The ideal candidate would be an upper-level journalism student with an interest in magazines who's willing to commit two to three days a week to the internship, for a total of about 10 hours a week. We will consider any candidate with a strong work ethic, experience in the basics of reporting and writing, and a desire to learn more about magazine publishing and journalism.
Applying: Please do not submit marketing, poetry or fiction samples. Applicants should mail or email three to five published writing samples, a resume and a cover letter to:
