Psychology Today has an excellent opportunity for a few smart and talented editorial interns at our office in NYC. We are a small staff, so you’ll be a key member of the team. Interns pitch story ideas and write short articles for the magazine. They typically receive two or three bylines per issue. Other duties include working with editors on story research and special projects, proofing print and online copy, helping to manage content on our website and blog network, and occasional transcription and light clerical work.
Journalism experience and an interest in human behavior required. Background in psychology and/or experience writing science stories not mandatory, but a plus. Must be able to juggle several tasks at once and work autonomously. Interns work Jan-May, 15-40 hours a week. Includes a $20 daily stipend and reimbursement for commuting costs.
