Description

Good day, future Pulitzer winners!
I’d like to extend an invitation on behalf of Denver’s largest LGBT publication, Out Front Magazine, to grace our office with your presence and our pages with your work. In exchange, we’ll collaborate with your school’s internship coordinator while providing you with the experience and portfolio you need to land that writing gig over at The New Yorker. Or Rolling Stone, whichever. We’re looking to fill four intern positions for budding journalists and we’re ready when you are.

Bonuses we provide you:
College credit. (Amount varies depending on your institution.)
Tickets to events. (Think Comic Con, Cirque du Soleil, media credentials to political events, and much more.)
Some great PDFs of your work to show potential employers.
Monthly dinners with the gang.
A possible position with the magazine.

Requirements

The attributes we’re looking at Out Front for are:

Versatility.
You may be penning a sports piece. You may be hammering out a travel guide. You might be interviewing a local politician … or his kitten, who knows? If you’re comfortable diving into the gamut of topics, then you’re the writer we’re looking for.

Initiative.
Isn’t it bothersome when someone hounds you for info he or she could’ve googled? Ugh! The worst! Good thing you’re not that type. From proper spelling to contact info, you ferret out the deets for yourself … and we admire you for it.

A great voice.
In the world of modern journalism, there’s a new move to get rid of the stuffy ol’ news robot. People are glomming on to grabby narratives and a more casual approach to reporting … something akin to reading a well-written letter from a friend. If you’re keen on delivering the scoop in a way that entertains, bring it.

Reliability.
You don’t need to be reminded that your piece on [that thing] is due [at that time]. Heck, sometimes you’re even early with [that awesome piece]. Thank you so much, [your name]!

Bonus attributes that’ll catch our eye:
The ability to take print-worthy pictures.
A decent grasp of AP style.
