Stage posté par Tikkun Magazine
Publié le : 22 déc. 2012
Editorial interns at Tikkun gain hands-on experience in magazine editing. At Tikkun—unlike at many other national magazines, where interns often find themselves fetching coffee and making photocopies—editorial interns play a central role in evaluating submissions and proofing each issue of the magazine. Editorial interns review every submission that comes in, bringing promising articles to the attention of the editorial staff. They help brainstorm authors to commission, fact-check, brainstorm illustration ideas, and prepare articles for publication. This internship is very selective and has the potential to launch students into careers in magazine journalism. Editorial interns may have the opportunity to publish an article, but we make no guarantees—interns' submissions are subjected to the same strict standards as any other submissions to the magazine.
We are currently seeking interns for Spring 2013, Summer 2013, and Fall 2013.
QUALIFICATIONS: Candidates for this position must be familiar with Tikkun magazine and interested in its coverage of politics and spirituality. They must be hawk-eyed proofreaders with an obsessive attention to detail, a professional work ethic, and a willingness to study the Chicago Manual of Style and Tikkun's in-house style guide.
TO APPLY: Email a cover letter, resume, and two writing samples to firstname.lastname@example.org. In your cover letter, describe your background in journalism and editing and explain why you are capable of doing first-rate work in this capacity. If we are interested in your application, we will contact you and ask you to complete an additional assignment. NO PHONE CALLS, PLEASE.
