Style Magazine Internships (Baltimore)


Style Magazine is a bimonthly lifestyle publication distributed to some 50,000 homes in the greater Baltimore area through a controlled list, a subscription base and sales from more than 250 newsstands. Published seven times each year, Style covers home design, personalities, fashion, entertaining, parenting, travel, food and other lifestyle topics-always keeping a Baltimore focus in mind. Our goal is to produce a local magazine with national quality writing, editing, photography and design.
Style interns are treated as editorial assistants and given opportunities to report and write front-of-book blurbs as well as bylined articles. The internship is best suited for upper-level or advanced college students with previous writing or journalism experience. Potential interns should be comfortable working in a professional environment, and comfortable working independently as well as collaboratively. We welcome interns who are enthusiastic and inquisitive about reporting, writing, and magazine production.
Specific internship duties include:
• Fact checking articles by telephone, library, Internet, or original reference materials to ensure accuracy prior to publication.
• Reporting and research to write short front-of-book blurbs
• Researching, writing, and revising bylined articles for publication
• Clerical tasks such as Xeroxing, faxing, etc.
**Style only offers editorial internships. We do not have internships in photography, graphic design, advertising or marketing.
**Before applying, please familiarize yourself with the editorial content and style of Style magazine.
Students must be available TWO FULL DAYS or THREE HALF DAYS, approximately 12 to 15 hours per week. Internships run the course of one semester, are unpaid, and usually must be taken for academic credit. Please investigate this possibility with you advisor, and arrange your class schedule and availability, before contacting the magazine.
