Internships

Editorial Internship

Editorial interns assist the editorial department with fact-checking, research, evaluation of unsolicited manuscripts, and other administrative tasks. Interns have the opportunity to contribute to the Prospect's Web site, and are expected to participate in daily editorial meetings. The internship program also features regular "brown-bag" lunches with guest speakers from local media and progressive organizations. Recent speakers include Chris Hayes on magazine feature writing; Matthew Yglesias on blogging as a career; Ezra Klein on policy reporting; and Spencer Ackerman on reporting from a war zone. We encourage interns to fully integrate themselves into the operations of the magazine while taking full advantage of the events and hearings only available in Washington, D.C.

This is a full-time internship and comes with a $100 weekly stipend. The American Prospect will assist in arranging for academic or work-study credit whenever possible, though interns who receive full course credit are ineleigible for the weekly stipend.

Applicants should have an interest in politics and journalism. To apply, please mail, fax, or email a cover letter, resume, two writing samples (clips preferred), and one letter of recommendation to:
