OBJECTIVEAtlantic Media believes in the value of a diverse and inclusive work environment. As part of our continuing effort to support diversity, we are offering year-long editorial fellowships to two emerging journalists. The goal of the fellowships is to increase the representation of historically underrepresented groups at the company and to provide an opportunity for recent graduates and journalism professionals to develop editorial skills through a series of rotations across our publications.

OPPPORTUNITYAtlantic Media’s Editorial Diversity Fellowship offers the opportunity for two outstanding individuals to join our editorial staff for one year. Fellows will complete three 4-month rotations with assignments designed to give hands-on experience in research, editing, and reporting. Working closely with our writers and editors in our Watergate offices, fellows will be exposed to all facets of journalism and political reporting. Fellows will also have the opportunity to spend a rotation on the business side of journalism, providing support to the circulation and reader relations or advertising and marketing teams. Fellows will earn an annual salary and be eligible for coverage under the Company’s group medical insurance program. Fellows are responsible for their own housing.
