TAC is beginning its search for a summer intern. The position entails getting at least a little experience with almost everything that goes into the editorial side of the magazine, including writing short items for our “Front Lines” department, blogging, proofreading, editing, and contributing headline ideas. TAC editorial assistants are also expected to produce at least one article under their own byline during their time with us. Helping out with clerical duties — answering phones, taking mail to the post office, etc. — is also part of the gig. There is a small stipend, about enough to cover rent in the D.C. area.
College students or recent graduates who would like to apply should send a resume and writing sample to me, Daniel McCarthy, at [email protected] The duration of the internship is negotiable; we’d ideally like someone who can start sometime in May and work through mid- or late August.
