New York Family magazine is presently recruiting for its summer internship program, a writing-intensive program that has nurtured the careers of many talented undergrads, graduate students, and post-students hoping to be journalists. We are, essentially, a lifestyle magazine for parents, and as part of our staff, 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 being 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 you are a good match for the internship.

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

Thank you
