EDITORIAL
Attention, aspiring editors and writers!

Editorial interns' main responsibility is fact-checking, an integral part of putting out a quality publication. They also do research for the staff on a wide range of topics. As time allows, they write pieces for publication in one or more of our editorial products: Indianapolis Monthly, City Guide, The Ticket, and Shops. Online writing opportunities abound. Interns are expected to attend staff meetings and submit story ideas for both print and online publication.

Candidates need to be extremely detail-oriented, with the ability to research myriad topics correctly and efficiently. The ability to hit the ground running and to change topics in a heartbeat will serve you well.

This internship is an excellent opportunity to see the inner workings of a magazine. It is not get-me-some-coffee-and-file-this. It is be your own thinker and problem-solver, think of story ideas, and contribute as a member of the staff.

If you find this interesting and believe you would be a good fit, submit your resume and some writing samples (no poetry, please) to Kim Hannel, Managing Editor.

40 Monument Circle, Suite 100

ART + PHOTO
Attention, aspiring designers!

Indianapolis Monthly has opportunities year-round for graphic design internships. What can art interns expect to gain at Indianapolis Monthly? We offer students a wide variety of opportunities not only in the areas of art and design, but also practical experience at a real magazine. That’s something you can’t get in school. In addition, interns come away with great portfolio pieces to help in that next, very important step of finding a job after graduation.

Candidates should be detail-oriented, very proactive, and have the ability to multitask correctly and efficiently. Any candidate must possess a strong grasp of Adobe Suite products, especially InDesign and PhotoShop. We support a MacIntosh environment.

This internship is an excellent opportunity to see the inner workings of a magazine. You will contribute as a member of the staff by assisting the Art Director, going to photo shoots and assisting our photographer, designing advertising, flyers, logos, website ad and content images, or whatever is needed that day!

Note: We are now looking for Spring 2015 interns. Please do not send art/photo internship submissions by postal mail. Thanks for your interest.

If you find this interesting and believe you would be a good fit, submit your resume and work samples or web information to Katie Cline, Associate Art Director. This internship is unpaid but can be taken for credit.
