The Washington Monthly is looking for thoughtful, creative, driven interns. We have a small staff that produces big stories, so expect to work closely with editors on our website and bimonthly print magazine. We are a nonprofit, independent voice with nearly 50 years of experience understanding Washington and telling fascinating, deeply reported stories about the ideas and characters that animate America’s government. This is not a place where interns fetch coffee and observe journalism from the sidelines; you’ll be expected to research and fact check stories, pitch your own stories for the site, and help manage our social media accounts.

This is a part-time, paid position, and we can do our best to accommodate a second job if necessary. No phone calls, please.

“The Washington Monthly was an amazing place to do an internship. That’s where it cemented for me that I wanted to be journalist.” – Ezra Klein

Recent interns have gone on to work for the following publications: Washington Post, Politico, Politico Magazine, Chicago Tribune, Mother Jones, the Week, American Prospect, and St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Applicants should have an interest in politics and journalism. People of color, women, and LGBTQ people are strongly encouraged to apply.

To apply, please e-mail a cover letter, resume, and two clips to ecortellessa@washingtonmonthly.com — and mention “Fall Internship” in the subject line.

We are currently accepting applications for the Fall 2020 Editorial Internship.
