Duties: The Chronicle of the Horse offers an editorial internship for people interested in horses and journalism. Our internship gives interns a real feel for publishing. The job description varies little from the actual duties of the editorial staff. We work with the intern, offering personal attention and a level of responsibility fitted to the individual. Duties include: proofreading; writing news, features and other content for The Chronicle of the Horse magazine, Untacked and www.coth.com; researching, managing and publishing photo galleries online, special web projects, interviewing experts for profiles or features.
Requirements: Interns should have a strong writing background, ideally with some news and feature writing experience, and should be interested in a career in journalism or new media. Interns should have in-depth knowledge of English horse sports and a competitive background is strongly suggested. Our most successful candidates are sport horse news junkies who can hit the ground running thanks to knowing the magazine and the sports we cover inside and out. Familiarity with AP style, CMS, and photography helpful. This competitive internship is a great fit for top college students and graduates. Hours are 9-5, with some weekends spent on assignment. Please plan to apply at least three months before the start of the internship. Find more information here: http://www.chronofhorse.com/page/careers-internships
