Fall Editorial Internships
Houstonia is now accepting applications for our fall editorial internship program. Due to Covid-19, this will be a virtual internship, offering those selected for the program the chance to work with our remarkable staff and hone their journalism skills remotely.
We hire editorial interns on a rotating basis throughout the year and are constantly on the hunt for bright, diligent, and ambitious applicants.
We train but expect our interns to hit the ground running. Duties include fact-checking articles, assisting editors with research and reporting, and writing digital stories; all interns are paid a base rate of $20 per web post. We expect and encourage interns to be a part of the team by contributing their own ideas, attending meetings, and getting to know the editorial staff.
Successful candidates will be detail-oriented, responsible, well-read, curious, and knowledgeable about the city. You must be a current student at the time of the internship. Some students complete internships with Houstonia for college credit.
While we try to be flexible with student schedules during the academic year, the internship requires a firm commitment of 20 hours per week.
Start and end dates vary with the needs and flexibility of the magazine, but generally we hire new interns three times per year (Spring, Summer, Fall). Please note in your cover letter for which term you are applying and your availability to work during the week.
Deadline to apply is April 18. To apply, send the cover letter, a résumé with references, and three (3) writing samples to:
