Richmond magazine accepts applications for unpaid editorial and marketing internships in the spring (January through May), summer (June 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. 


We’re offering remote and hybrid internships to qualified students at this time. This is a chance to work with seasoned professionals at a reputable publication without leaving your safe space, whether it’s on campus or at your home. Much of our program hasn’t changed. Interns at Richmond magazine do a little bit of everything, minus coffee-making and busy work. Be prepared to research, fact check and write short articles, from wherever you are.

Qualifications: The ideal candidate is an upper-level college journalism student with an interest in magazine writing who is willing to commit two to three days a week to the internship, for approximately 10 hours a week. 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 three to five published writing samples. Please do not submit poetry, term papers or fiction samples. Send your materials to:

Note: Our summer 2023 internship positions have been filled. We are accepting applications for fall 2023.
