Milwaukee Magazine, one of the nation’s finest city and regional publications, has editorial internship positions available for the summer. Yes, this summer – the one in which the Democratic National Convention will be in Milwaukee.

We seek journalists with a commitment to accuracy and detail as well as a knack for telling Milwaukee’s stories to our 200,000-plus readers. You’ll be doing plenty of fact-checking, and we prefer candidates who have prior experience fact-checking. You’ll balance that with some writing for our print editions and our website,, including being a key contributor to our coverage of the DNC – a once-in-a-career event for many journalists. You’ll also be involved with larger research projects. You’ll sit in on – and participate in – brainstorming sessions that help decide the direction of the magazine’s editorial content. And the only coffee you’ll get is your own. This is a professional role.

We take pride when former interns, having honed and expanded their skill set here, move on to full-time positions at newspapers, magazines or other communication jobs. In many cases, they’ve returned to our offices for full-time jobs or become regular freelance contributors.

Please submit a cover letter along with your resume explaining what sets you apart from the field, along with a resume and three writing clips. Send pieces that display your style and versatility. Finalists will be contacted for an interview. No phone calls please.
