Magazine interns needed at The Nation
For more than three decades The Nation Institute, in conjunction with The Nationmagazine, has provided an internship program for college students and recent graduates interested in magazine journalism and publishing.
Our internship program offers three internship sessions a year, with twelve internship positions available during each session. Seven editorial interns work with The Nation magazine. These interns’ primary responsibilities include fact-checking and research, and are based in the magazine’s New York City offices. Two additional interns, also based in the magazine’s New York City offices, work as web editorial interns for TheNation.com. One more editorial internship position is available in The Nation’s Washington D.C. office. We also offer two new additional internship positions at the non-profit Nation Institute. One intern works primarily with the Institute’s progressive book imprint, Nation Books, while the other intern works with the Institute’s Investigative Fund. Both of these interns will also work on Institute-related projects and will be based at the Institute’s New York City offices.
All interns have the opportunity to write for TheNation.com; participate in career seminars with journalists, politicians, and activists; in addition to performing some administrative work. The internship is full time, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., five days a week. The Fall 2012 session begins September 4 and ends December 14, and the deadline for postmarked applications is July 1, 2012. There is a $150/week stipend.
Applicants must have completed their junior year of college. Each applicant will be evaluated on the basis of his or her cover letter, résumé, recommendations, and writing samples.
Please send a cover letter indicating your interest in The Nation and The Nation Institute and describing your career goals. In addition, include a résumé, two letters of recommendation, and two writing samples. Published clips are preferred, though academic papers and creative writing samples are acceptable (no longer than eight pages, please). Your application must be postmarked by the application deadline.
All application materials become the property of The Nation Institute. Please send your application to:
