We offer unpaid editorial internships (remote until further notice) where students will gain experience fact checking, copy editing and writing for both print and web. Interns will work on all three publications – Chapel Hill Magazine, Durham Magazine & Chatham Magazine. An ideal intern would be proactive and communicative, given remote nature of the internship, and would have experience with WordPress, AP Style and another publication. Spring & fall internships are 10 hours a week; summer & winter internships are 20-30 hours a week.
If you’d like to apply, please send email@example.com a resume and writing samples with “internship application” in the subject line. Deadline to apply: summer 2021 (March 12); fall 2021 (July 15); winter 2021 (Nov. 1) and spring 2022 (Nov. 1)
