Gain valuable hands-on, real-world experience while witnessing first-hand (and participating in) the process of creating and bringing to market a world class publication. Whether you are an aspiring writer, graphic designer, or business owner, an internship with Portland Magazine is an excellent way to gain the working knowledge and insight needed to launch your career!
Portland Magazine has played host to interns from Harvard, Yale, Brown, Simmons, Vassar, Bowdoin, Colby, Bates, the University of Maine system, and many others, including journalists who elect to participate at the post-graduate level. Because we’re driven by writing, our interns become stars. Our first intern, Hannah Holmes, is the author of The Secret Life of Dust. Intern Jason Brown wrote fiction for us before W.W. Norton published his Driving the Heart and he won a visiting writer’s chair at Stanford. And don’t miss Gwen Thompson’s prize-winning novella Men Beware Women. In a small, high-energy environment, Portland Magazine uniquely allows student interns to see a top-notch commercial magazine create itself in front of their very eyes. In fact, they help create it and participate in the miracle of each issue as it comes to life.
Interns must expect to use their personal vehicle to make deliveries, chase after stories, shoot photos, and other magazine-related duties.
Open to current college students and graduates. Credit hours for college students: 3-6, depending on the length of internship. This is an unpaid internship.
