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 credit from their school for the internship. Fall applications are due Oct. 5.


It looks like this is going to be another unusual semester. That’s why we’re offering remote internships to qualified students this fall. This is a chance to work with seasoned professionals at a reputable publication without leaving your safe space, whether it’s on campus or in 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, all from wherever you are.

Qualifications: The ideal candidate is an upper-level college journalism student with an interest in magazines who is willing to commit two to three days a week to the internship, for approximately 10 hours a week. We will consider any student 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: Please do not submit poetry, term papers or fiction samples. Applicants should send three to five published writing samples, a resume and a cover letter to:

If you have any questions, please call Craig Belcher at 804-355-0111, ext. 324.


Interns will mostly work in the field by taking on photo assignments on location and help with photo retouching and color correction. Depending on COVID conditions, students may be able to help assist with photo shoots in a studio setting with seasoned photographers.

Qualifications: The ideal candidate will be a college student studying photography or related field with an interest in editorial photography. A commitment of at least 10 hours a week is required for this internship. We prefer students who have their own digital SLR camera but will consider any candidate with a strong work ethic and a desire to learn more about photography in a magazine setting.

Applying: Interns must receive college credit earned through your academic program for this internship. Applicants should email a cover letter, resume and three to five low-res images or a link to samples of your work to Creative Director Justin Vaughan: justinv [at] richmag [dot] com. No phone calls, please.
