Magazine internships

The American Society of Magazine Editors sponsors a ten-week summer internship program for college juniors each year. The internship program is intended for editorially oriented students. The emphasis is on editing magazines, and includes the performance under supervision of such tasks as handling reader mail, evaluating unsolicited manuscripts, researching articles, checking facts, proofreading, copy editing, interviewing, covering press conferences, and attending editorial meetings. At a number of magazines, there may also be reporting and writing opportunities, even a few bylines. Some interns have the opportunity to see how the circulation, advertising and other business departments of the magazine function.
