Outside Online internship

Outside magazine is accepting applications for fulltime online
internships available throughout the year. Outside's interns attend
editorial meetings, work closely with top editors, and gain hands-on
experience publishing an online edition that supplements the print
publication.

The work is full-time and a small stipend is offered. Typical duration
of the internship is six months, but some flexibility with schedules
can be accommodated. Location is our editorial office in Santa Fe.

Duties include preparing the print edition for online publication,
image acquisition and image management, copyediting, fact-checking,
research, and opportunities to write content for the website. The
intern will also take part in edit meetings, pitch story ideas, and
assist in the development of new features for outsideonline.com.

The best candidates have had some journalism experience before
applying, such as a job at a newspaper or magazine,
prior internships in print media, a graduate degree in journalism, or
significant college writing experience. But we encourage all college
graduates with a serious professional interest in online journalism-
and a desire to learn and work hard-to apply. We consider active
college and graduate students but cannot guarantee that our scheduling
needs will align with academic calendars. The internship can be used
for college credit if your university allows it.

To apply, mail or e-mail a letter (noting any significant freelance
writing experience, HTML or Web experience, Photoshop skills, or
journalism experience), and resume to the attention of Joe Spring (see
details below). Responses may take four to six weeks. The most
promising candidates will be contacted by phone. Applications should
be made at least 4 months prior to the desired start date.
