Richmond magazine accepts applications for unpaid editorial and marketing internships in the spring (January through May), summer (May through August) and fall (September through December). Interns must receive academic credit from their school for the internship. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. 


This is a chance to work with seasoned professionals at a reputable publication in a way that fits your schedule. Interns at Richmond magazine do a little bit of everything, so be prepared to research, fact check and write short articles. "Everything" also includes attending meetings: All interns are required to attend a weekly staff meeting at our office and to check in regularly with the intern coordinator.

Qualifications: The ideal candidate is a college journalism student with an interest in magazine writing who is willing to commit two to three days a week (approximately 10 hours a week) to the internship. We will consider students with a strong work ethic, experience in the basics of reporting and writing, and a desire to learn more about magazine publishing and journalism. We do require that interns receive academic credit from their degree-granting institutions.

Applying: Submit a cover letter, resume, and at least three published writing samples. Please do not submit poetry, term papers or fiction samples. Send your materials to:
