As news breaks faster, it’s important to get it right, and copy editors are crucial to that process online and in print. Multiplatform Interns edit stories on deadline for accuracy, clarity, style, spelling and grammar for the print and digital publications, as well as write headlines appropriate for each platform. There are also opportunities to learn layout design on the news desk.
Applicants should send eight headlines and editing samples. Clips should include notes explaining the applicant’s role in shaping the story for publication.
A cover letter and résumé with references are required with all applications. Application materials will not be returned, and applicants should not expect an explanation of why their application was accepted or rejected.
Application deadline is October 30.
Applicants must be enrolled in college and working toward a degree (associate’s, bachelor’s, master’s or doctorate) or they may have graduated within six months prior to the internship start date.
Previous daily newspaper experience is requested.
