JOURNALISM INTERNSHIP This is an ideal position for a graduate or part-time student, with some editorial experience (e.g. on a university publication or similar) to develop their writing skills. The student/graduate would gain experience of working in a fast-paced, creative environment and an insight into the production process of a successful magazine. The placement would involve working on both the print and online magazines, and the intern would report to the Fashion & Features Editor and the Online Editor. Our internships are very hands-on and do not focus on making the tea or photocopying! Rather, they are an opportunity to gain valuable editorial experience and further develop a professional portfolio.

· Researching content for both the print and online magazines
· Updating the website with new content
· Helping to create the fortnightly digital newsletter
· Using Twitter and Facebook to promote posts
· Working with a small team of writers

 · Writing short online articles (potentially involving interviews)
· Writing longer features for the print magazine depending on competency of intern
· The occasional administrative task, although this is not the focus of the placement

REQUIREMENTS
· An interest in fashion, art, culture, travel
· Fluency in both written and verbal English, high literacy and an excellent grasp of grammar
· An interest and involvement in social media is an advantage
· Would suit students/graduates of journalism (fashion/lifestyle/arts)
