Disregard all listings of Voice internships at non-Voice websites. Most are hopelessly out of date.
Make sure you understand which internship/fellowship you're applying for.
Make sure you send your application to the right person.
Here's the rundown of editorial opportunities at the Voice:
Throughout the year, Editorial Arts Assistant Eric Sundermann employs a part-time intern to help administer our theater, books, dance, and art pages. He typically takes applications three times a year coinciding with the school seasons (send a cover letter, resume and clips to Brian Parks, Arts and Culture Editor, Village Voice, 36 Cooper Square, New York, NY, 10003).
This is a three- to four-month, unpaid position, and requires that you are getting college credit for the internship.
Mary Wright Minority Fellowship — calling all journalists of color!
[Fall fellowship filled. We'll start taking applications for the Winter/Spring fellowship in January.]
This is a three-month, paid fellowship ($500/week), and is a full-time position. Mary Wright fellows work like staff writers, reporting and writing cover stories and shorter pieces for the Runnin' Scared blog. We're most interested in recent college graduates who have impressive clips. Daily reporting experience is very helpful. Applications, including a cover letter, resume, and clips, should be sent to Will Bourne(WBourne@villagevoice.com).
Throughout the year, Art Director John Dixon employs full-time interns to work in the Art and Photo Department. The photo interns help arrange photo shoots, shoot assignments, do photo research and photo trafficking. He typically takes applications four times a year coinciding with the school seasons. Applicants should have a basic understanding of Photoshop and must be available to work at least 15 hours a week. The internship is credit-based only. Interested candidates should send cover letter, resume and examples of work to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We start taking applications in the fall and spend months narrowing down applicants for various newspapers in our company (Applications should be sent to Andy Van De Voorde at 969 Broadway, Denver, CO 80203).
This is a six-month, paid fellowship ($500/week), and is a full-time position. VVM fellows work like staff writers, and have a longer time to prove that they're worthy of consideration as permanent employees. VVM fellows tend to have post-graduate degrees and impressive clip files.
The Village Voice does not take international students for its internships or fellowships.
