Magazine Editorial Intern

Bookmark This



Firebrand Media, a fast-growing Orange County media company, is seeking dedicated and detail-oriented college students for an editorial internship in magazine journalism. Programs are offered three times per year, beginning in September, early January and June.

Our interns will gain valuable practical experience and knowledge working on the company’s regional magazines and luxury hotel publications. Our program offers a hands-on, real-world experience for college students looking to break into the magazine industry—meaning you won’t be going on coffee runs or filing paperwork.

Compensation: This is an unpaid internship for academic credit only; we will help take care of any paperwork relating to college credit as well as provide a gas stipend of $100 monthly to cover transportation costs.

Schedule: We are flexible and can accommodate school and work schedules, but we ask that interns commit to a minimum of two full days per week in our Laguna Beach office.

Please email your resume, cover letter and two writing samples (school assignments are acceptable) to with “INTERNSHIP – [FIRSTNAME] [LASTINITIAL]” in the subject line. Do not call or stop by the office or your application will be discarded.


Interns will have an opportunity to:
• Write content for the magazines and leave with published print clips.
• Assist editors in editing/fact-checking articles.
• Develop story ideas and participate in planning meetings, where they will pitch their ideas to the editorial team.
• Work on other assignments according to skill set and level of interest.


We ask that all applicants have a serious interest in pursuing magazine journalism as a career; college coursework in communications, journalism, English or related fields; and basic knowledge of AP Style or a willingness to learn. This is an educational experience for students, so interns should be open to receiving regular feedback.
