Journalism internship @ Seattle Business magazine

Seattle Business, a monthly magazine that covers Washington state business news and has 105,00 readers, is seeking a part-time editorial intern.

Interns usually work on a six-month contract for 20 hours per week. A $100 stipend is paid at the end of the internship. While ideal for recent college grads, anyone with an interest in magazine and/or business journalism would find us a good place to cut their teeth.

Typical intern responsibilities include fact-checking all stories with primary sources (we have an established procedure for this, but it does involves a fair amount of phone/email work), writing much of the front “Startup” section of each issue and compiling the business events calendar.

Interns are also called upon to write blog posts for the website, develop and research story ideas, attend editorial department brainstorming and planning meetings, conduct interviews, perform other editorial-related clerical work, and write longer stories for the magazine.

If interested, send a résumé and writing samples (published preferred, but not required) to John Levesque, managing editor, Seattle Business, 1518 First Ave. S., Suite 500, Seattle, WA 98134, or via e-mail to john.levesque[at]tigeroak.com.
