Editorial Internship

City Paper offers spring, summer, winter, and fall editorial internships. Editorial interns are crucial to our weekly process and work closely with editors and writers. Interns check the facts in all of City Paper's articles and listings, which cover everything from shows and concerts in town to features about Baltimore's drug and crime scene. Interns also maintain the City Paper online calendar (and ultimately, its published weekly calendar), which familiarizes them with goings on in Baltimore. Finally, various writing opportunities are available, including regular blog posting and print articles. If an intern has an interest in a particular type of writing, we do everything we can to facilitate that interest.

Spring internships run between January and May; summer internships between May and August; fall, between August/September and December. During these periods, interns usually work 10 hours a week (two five-hour days), but various scheduling arrangements can be made.

Winter internships span about month, from mid- to late December to late January, and are typically full-time, though we do our best to accommodate interns' scheduling conflicts.

Please apply by sending internships@citypaper.com a brief cover letter, resume, and 2-3 writing samples (preferably published work; no poetry, please). The internship should be for credit and will span the semester.
