Journalism: Catholic Review Editorial Internship

The Catholic Review’s goal for an intern is to familiarize the student journalist with the process of producing a weekly newspaper for the Archdiocese of Baltimore and to provide the student with an opportunity to be involved in page production, conduct interviews and write for the newspaper.

A student intern at The Catholic Review, working seven to 12 hours a week, can expect to be fully integrated into the newsroom’s process during his or her time at the newspaper. Interns will participate in staff planning meetings and will be asked to contribute story ideas as well as write for the newspaper. Questions from the student intern are always welcomed.

The intern can expect to write feature stories for the newspaper’s special sections, such as health and seniors. The student also may be asked to find material for parish news, and to find stories and photos from the newspaper’s files. The intern will write news stories and other items as assigned.

The news editor will assign the intern’s duties each week, be responsible for editing the intern’s copy and discussing writing and editing goals.

The news editor will provide the intern with a written evaluation of his or her performance during and at the end of the internship. The student journalist also will be asked to evaluate his or her experience at The Catholic Review for the news editor and the editor/associate publisher.

Students may send a resume and clips to Carolyn Monette, assistant news editor, at cmonette@catholicreview.org or 880 Park Ave., Baltimore, MD 21201.
