The Ms. internship* is designed to provide real-word feminist journalism experience to aspiring writers, social media managers, activists and change-makers.
As such, Ms. interns will perform tasks to assist Ms. in both its editorial and social media production. This means working closely with editors on print magazine and digital content production—including writing, editing and fact-checking for Ms. online; assisting in social media coordination and content creation; aiding in the production of upcoming issues of the print magazine; assisting Ms. scholars and professors who plan to use Ms. content in their classrooms; and working with our sister organization, Feminist Majority Foundation, on activist and organizing campaigns.
This is a great, hands-on opportunity to learn how non-profit, feminist journalism operates; make connections in the feminist news space; practice how to pitch an article, complete research, interview subjects, copy edit your own and other writers’ work, and submit a close-to-final draft to an editor; learn how to leverage social media to create social change; gain insight into how social media shapes digital publishing; build a portfolio as a writer; and grow your own social media bonafides.
To apply, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with the following:
- A cover letter and resume. Please include a GPA on your resume and/or attach an official or unofficial transcript.
