Job Description

Milwaukee Magazine, one of the nation's finest city and regional publications, has a paid editorial internship position available for the rest of the spring semester. The part-time position carries no college credit requirements, so graduates are as welcome to apply as current students.

We seek journalists with a commitment to accuracy and detail as well as a knack for telling Milwaukee's stories to our 200,000-plus readers. You'll be doing plenty of fact-checking and copyediting. You'll balance that with some writing for our print editions and our website, MilwaukeeMag.com. You'll be involved with larger research projects. You'll sit in on brainstorming sessions that help decide the direction of the magazine's editorial content. And the only coffee you'll get is your own. This is a professional role.

We take pride when former interns, having honed and expanded their skill set here, move on to full-time positions at newspapers, magazines or other communication jobs. In fact, one intern just made such a move, opening up this spring internship slot, which will run through the end of May. As such, we're looking to move very fast on bringing in a replacement.

To apply, submit a cover letter explaining what sets you apart from the field along with a resume and three writing clips. Send pieces that display your style and versatility. Finalists will be contacted for an interview.


Interns will work 20 hours a week at our Historic Third Ward offices in downtown Milwaukee. You should have experience working in a journalistic environment, be it a professional or a student publication. You should never assume the facts are correct and be comfortable in verifying them. You should know AP Style, and if you're not familiar with our magazine, you should rectify that soon.
