Media Organization: SAVEUR Magazine
Saveur is a gourmet, food, wine, and travel magazine that specializes in essays about various world cuisines.
SAVEUR is seeking a motivated, organized, and passionate individual to join our print editorial team as an intern for the upcoming spring semester. This is an opportunity to work alongside and learn from a small, tight-knit editorial team on a prestigious, award-winning print publication. The ideal candidate should have excellent researching and writing skills, as well as an inexhaustible appetite for good food and journalism across the globe. Knowledge of a foreign language is preferred, but not required.
The internship would run from June through August, and would require 15 to 20 hours per week in our New York City office. You must be able to get school credit as this internship is unpaid.
Primary responsibilities include:
Researching print stories in development
Fact-checking and proofreading print stories
Pitching and writing front-of-book stories for SAVEUR
Pitching and writing stories for saveur.com
Attending editorial meetings
Occasional administrative duties
In this collaborative environment, interns will wear many hats. You will learn the ins and outs of publishing a print magazine, from the art of successfully pitching stories to producing, proofreading, and shipping the final pages to the printer. You will also have ample opportunity to contribute to saveur.com, as well as some short front-of-book pieces and sidebars in the print magazine. We are looking for self-starters; the scale of your contributions is up to you.
To apply, email email@example.com with the subject line “Editorial Intern - Summer 2018." Please include your resume, a few words about yourself and why you’d like to intern at SAVEUR, three writing samples (they don’t necessarily need to be about food, but it helps), and 100 words telling us about your most interesting food-related travel experience.
