EDITORIAL WRITING INTERNSHIP

For all internships at Charleston Weddings, send your resume and three writing samples to Catherine Lowe (clowe@charlestonmag.com).

Our internship is a competitive opportunity to hone and practice your journalistic skills by working first-hand on an editorial team. The spring program, which takes place from December 2018 to May 2019, will coordinate with the production of our spring 2019 issue of Charleston Weddings Magazine and the 2019 issue of Asheville Wedding Guide, so the intern will have the chance to get hands-on work—offering an authentic look at all that goes on to produce a magazine, site, and daily blog. Main responsibilities will include writing, editing, fact-checking, and handling of general administrative work (for Charleston Weddings Magazine, Asheville Wedding Guide, High Country Wedding Guide, and as well as our blog, The Wedding Row). The editorial intern will also help out with at least one fashion photo shoot, social media, public relations efforts, and much more.

 

The internship is unpaid and requires a minimum of 16-20 hours per week. We are looking for someone with strong skills and experience in proofing and copyediting (in adherence to both AP and Chicago Style); solid feature writing skills; and managerial capabilities. Knowledge of Adobe InDesign and an interest in the subject matter are preferred.
 

Please apply by December 15, 2018.
