culture is America’s first and best magazine dedicated to cheese. We publish six print issues per year, run a website and social media platforms, and host events around the country. Interns here get valuable insight into the modern publishing industry while also enjoying pounds upon pounds of the best cheeses on earth. Come and work alongside our small and talented staff on articles for the magazine and web, cheese events, photo and video shoots, social media marketing, and more.Job Description
We are currently accepting applications for our spring internship cycle. Our internships are based in Boston, 16-24 hours per week, and offer flexible scheduling. We are happy to work with your school to offer academic credit. In the past, interns have included current undergraduate and graduate students, as well as food lovers looking for a career change or a way to learn more about cheese.
Writing & Editing: Interns are asked to write short pieces for the website. In addition, you may be asked to write for the newsletter or magazine. Pieces also need to be proofed and edited to make sure they match our style guide. In addition, all pieces for the culture blog and magazine are fact checked within an inch of their lives and you will likely help with this.
Blogging: Most interns are asked to complete a blog series. Here are some examples of past interns’ series:
- Distant Cheeses, Local Farmers by Molly McDonough
- Real Cheese Product by Grant Bradley
- Cheese Personality by Natalie Gardino
- Writing chops: Our interns write each and every day.
- Attention to detail: No comma escapes your notice.
- Love of cheese: Seriously, we eat a lot of cheese.
- Great attitude: We work in controlled chaos… and it’s fun!
- Experience with blogging or social media.
- Photography and/or video skills a plus, but not required.
Spring internships last from late January to early May. Editorial interns must be available to work in our office at least some of the time (you’ll learn more this way).
