Paid Internship: Orion (Deadline Dec. 1)

Orion Magazine 2008 Editorial Intern Position

Orion magazine is accepting applications for an Editorial Internship for 2008. This is a six-month position, commencing in January 2008. The Editorial Intern will be exposed to all aspects of producing a high-quality, bimonthly publication at an award-winning nonprofit publication. The Intern is expected to work a forty-hour week. The position pays an after-tax
stipend of $1,000/month.

The Orion staff is small and functions in a collaborative manner. The Editorial Intern will assist in basic administrative tasks such as mail management, correspondence with readers and contributors, photocopying, the taking of meeting minutes, fact-checking, evaluating unsolicited submissions, proofreading, and tracking down information.

Recent Orion interns have gone on to jobs in media (including Orion) and graduate school.
