Editorial Internship for Charleston Weddings

Our internship is a competitive opportunity to hone and practice your journalism skills at an award-winning magazine and its associated digital properties. The intern will help coordinate the production of Charleston Weddings magazine and our blog, the Wedding Row. Main responsibilities include wedding trend research, writing, editing, fact-checking, and general administrative work. The editorial intern will also help out with social media.
 
The ideal applicant is a detail-oriented self-starter who is genuinely interested in the wedding industry. We are looking for someone with strong writing skills and experience in proofing and copyediting (in adherence to the Chicago Manual of Style), solid writing skills, and knowledge of Adobe InDesign. The internship is unpaid and requires a minimum of 15 hours per week.
 
Interested candidates should contact Peggy Loftus (weddingseditor@charlestonmag.com) and submit a cover letter, résumé, and three writing samples (each sample must not exceed 1,000 words). High school students will not be considered. While we're happy to consider remote internships, preference will be given to local candidates.
