New York Family offers a wonderful hands-on internship program that has helped many undergrads, graduate students, and people looking for work in magazine and newspaper journalism to build their resumes and advance their careers. We are presently accepting applications for our winter internships, which begin in January. As part of the New York Family team, you'll have opportunities to write stories for both the magazine and the website across a broad range of subjects, including education, health and fitness, "green" living, culture, fashion, New York City fun, child development, and parenting. You'll also have opportunities to help us with editing and social media, if interested. Ideally, candidates should have experience writing for school publications or other outlets, but we also welcome applications from people with with less experience but outstanding writing and communication skills and an interest in journalism. In addition to be writing intensive, our internship program is noteworthy for its mentoring and scheduling flexibility.

Interested candidates should send a resume, a few writing samples (if you have them), and most importantly a cover letter explaining why this internship would be a good match for you.

Email is best. Send materials to Eric Messinger at, and put "magazine intern" in the subject line.

Thank you
