Internships in English
INDIANAPOLIS MONTHLY, Summer & Fall 2014
Internship in Editing and Publishing
Undergraduate English majors are eligible to serve as editorial interns for Indianapolis Monthly, an outstanding regional magazine that publishes news and features about Indianapolis and the surrounding area. Editorial interns' main responsibility is fact-checking, but they also do research for articles and have the opportunity to write articles, as well. Each intern is assigned a mentor from among the editorial staff. Candidates should be detail-oriented. An intern is expected to work a total of approximately 120 hours — that equals eight hours per week in the spring or fall semester, for instance — and is eligible for up to three hours of credit in English L498. An intern is eligible to apply for a modest grant from the Honors College. NB: You must supply your own transportation to/from Indianapolis, though parking is reimbursed at up to $8.00/day.
To be eligible for this internship, you must have a GPA of 3.0 or better, and must have 12 credits in English at the 200-level or above, including L202 or L260. If you are interested in serving, send a letter of application to Ed Comentale, Director of Undergraduate Studies, Department of English, Ballantine Hall 442, by the deadline specified below. In the letter you should mention any previous experience in journalism or publishing, your course work in English, and your reasons for being interested in the internship. Please also list your class standing, campus address, email address, telephone number, and student ID number. The final selection of interns will be made by the Managing Editor of Indianapolis Monthly.
DEADLINE FOR LETTER OF APPLICATION: MONDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 2014.
