Spring 2018: Virginia Living - Editorial Intern

Dec 7, 2017

Posted in: Internships & scholarships, Journalism internships

Virginia Living magazine runs an editorial internship program offering experience in the magazine production process. Space is limited and standards are high.

Working under the supervision of the associate editor and other editorial staff, editorial interns will receive training in and experience of the editorial process, including pitching and researching stories, participating in the copy-editing and fact-checking process, learning A.P. Style and other editorial duties as assigned. Editorial interns may also have the opportunity to write for both the website and magazine. Virginia Living magazine will provide interns with a dedicated workstation.

Our internship program requires a commitment of at least twelve hours per week. The preferred minimum duration is two months (one magazine cycle) but this can be extended if both the editorial intern and Virginia Living magazine wish to do so.

This is an unpaid internship. Virginia Living magazine is happy to adjust its editorial internship program as necessary to meet college credit requirements. Interns can expect to receive bylines and clips for use in their portfolios.


To apply for a winter, spring or summer internship please email us with:

1. Your resumé.

2. Relevant writing samples. College newspaper clips are great but we also like to see something that showcases your voice. So if you write a blog or have any other similar platform for your writing then please include a link.

3. A brief explanation of why you wish to intern at Virginia Living magazine.
