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 Nov. 8; summer applications are due Feb. 1; and fall applications are due Aug. 8.
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, but the interns will be 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.
The ideal candidate would be a 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 and a desire to learn more about magazine publishing and journalism.
Applicants should mail or email three to five published writing samples, a resume and a cover letter to:
2201 W. Broad St., Suite 105
Richmond, Va. 23220
