New York, NY / Editorial Team
LIVID offers three internship cycles
Fall: September 1 – December 31
Spring: January 1 – May 31
Summer: June 1 – August 31
Some flexibility is possible to accommodate holidays and school schedules. The location is our editorial office in New York.
The internship is part-time (11 a.m. – 4 p.m., 3 days/week), unpaid, and interns must be eligible to receive school credit. Interns are part of a small editorial team and work very closely with staff. They are responsible for research, fact-checking, writing, and some administrative task.
Please send your résumé and three relevant writing samples to Send Mail.
Interview people and turn their interviews into compelling stories for our readers. Develop a strong editing and proofreading skill and the ability to multitask at once. You will be assigned stories from an editor and given a deadline by which to complete it. There will be some to limited travel required for an assignment or cover a photo shoot, press conference, red carpet event or arrange a phone interview with sources. Journalists need to be able to work independently when needed but within the realm of the vision of the magazine.
Overall, editorial interns must follow and adhere to deadlines, pitch story ideas to their editor, cultivate sources, fact-check their articles and adhere to the magazine style guide. Editorial interns have more time to cultivate a story that journalists in daily publication newsrooms, so they must be able to pull together various sources for their stories. They have strong communication skills and are willing to do what it takes to secure sources and original angles for their story.
No phone calls, please. Only those candidates considered for an interview will be contacted. Please regard your resume as having been received unless your email is bounced back. EOE.
