Editorial Internship

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 assistant 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 two to three days per week, for at least four hours a day. The preferred minimum duration is three to four months (January-April, May-August, September-December), but this can be extended if Virginia Living magazine wishes 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.

Qualifications: Junior or Senior in college, graduate student, or recent graduate (within the past year).
