Editorial Internship (Sacramento)

The Sacramento Press is an online, citizen journalism publication dedicated to providing the best in local news. We have been online since October of 2008 and we hope to continue to grow with the help of dedicated interns who are integral to our success.

As an intern at the Sacramento Press, you will be a huge part of our day-to-day success.
Function as a writer and cover local beats.
Explore a variety of story types – profiles, sports and event coverage, reviews, press conferences and more.
Meet story deadlines and generate story ideas.
Be a resource for our other writers, encourage and recruit.
Form and cultivate relationships with local businesses, clubs, and resource providers (librarians, ombudsmen, historians). You will be armed with the resources (digital cameras, voice recorders, professional photographers) to do on-the-scene reporting and really fine-tune your journalism skills.
Most of all, this is an opportunity to be creative and find new stories to tell and identify the people who can best follow those stories.

Please send resume and three relevant writing samples to:
