Description

Are you ready to gain real-world experience and advance your writing? College Magazine’s professional writing program is a 4-month commitment that includes a 7-week intensive training where you’ll uncover your voice, interview dream sources and write meaningful articles that readers love. Writers who succeed in the first 4 months often continue into our editorial internship program. Working closely with our editors, writers receive one-on-one feedback. Writers also learn social media, WordPress HTML, and the SEO knowledge necessary for the real world of magazine journalism.

The writer position is 10 hours a week on a flexible schedule. It’s a volunteer, intensive and challenging writing experience. Our graduates have gone on to careers at Vox, NBC, USA Today, Redbook, National Geographic, Random House and more. We welcome applicants from all majors and all colleges. Previous writing experience for a college-level publication is recommended.

Here are a few articles from other schools that show just how exciting it is to have student writers on your campus. Our writers have the opportunity to shine a light on all the experience at their university and all the incredible resources/clubs/classes the university has to offer:
