Internship
Sactown magazine is currently offering editorial internships for college students and recent college graduates. Our summer internship runs from mid-May to mid-September. Our fall internship runs from mid-September to mid-January. There may be some flexibility based on school schedules.

Interns will receive practical experience in reporting, writing, research and fact checking, and will learn the art and mechanics of a creating an award-winning magazine, both for print and online. Each intern will work closely with the editors on one or more sections of the magazine. This will be an exciting, fast-paced experience, and a great first step in a journalism career. The internship is unpaid. School credit may be available.

The position requires 16-24 hours of work per week (some full days are preferred whenever possible, although partial days can work, too), including occasional evenings or weekends to cover local events. Preference will be given to candidates who have worked on or contributed to a school or consumer publication. Please ONLY apply if you have some form of print journalism experience, either with a college publication or a consumer newspaper or magazine. School papers, even for journalism classes, don’t count.

If you are ambitious, creative, hardworking, and a self-starter, we welcome you to apply to our program. Please send a resume, a cover letter stating why you'd like to be an intern at Sactown, and three published articles to intern@sactownmag.com.
