Work for Guernica

Guernica magazine is a volunteer-driven organization and all positions listed below are unpaid.

Fall Editorial Internships at Guernica

Guernica is now accepting applications for our fall editorial internship program (September 15th through December, 2014). Interns’ involvement with the magazine spans all stages of the production cycle. Primary responsibilities include copyediting, fact-checking, web production, social media management, and occasional special projects. Writing for the magazine (Guernica Daily in particular) is encouraged. Interns work approximately fifteen hours per week (remotely for the most part) and are expected to attend editorial meetings, held on alternate Thursday evenings in NYC. Because we are an all-volunteer publication, internships are unpaid; however, they may be used for academic credit.

If you are interested in applying for the editorial internship, please submit a cover letter and résumé to internapplicants@guernicamag.com no later than August 28, 2014. Applicants who interview for internships will be expected to complete a copy-editing test.

Publishing interns must be available to work between ten and fifteen hours per week at the Guernica office and are expected to attend editorial meetings, held on alternate Thursday evenings in NYC. Because we are an all-volunteer publication, internships are unpaid; however, they may be used for academic credit. Candidates must have a demonstrated interest in the business side of magazine publishing.
