Media Organization: The New Yorker
The New Yorker magazine has a popular and ever-expanding Web site, which features much original reporting and criticism.
Interns for the Book Bench, the literary blog of The New Yorker magazine, write book reviews and other book-related items, conduct author interviews, report on literary events, and assist in aggregation and ideas generation. The internship pays a stipend of $12/day, with a minimum requirement of two days a week. They work closely with one of the magazine's editors. We are looking for interns for the spring semester (who can begin in January).
Applicants are asked to provide a resume, one sample blog post (on any topic of their choosing), and one sample "In the News" post. The blog can be viewed at http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/books/
