Editorial Internship

The Oxford American offers a comprehensive year-round editorial internship program.

Internships are unpaid, and we have full-time and part-time positions available. Internship terms begin in January, June, and September, though the program provides some flexibility for starting dates, and the opportunity for interested interns to extend their terms. The Oxford American’s office is located in the South Main neighborhood of Little Rock, Arkansas, and we have a satellite office on the campus of the University of Central Arkansas in Conway.

We accept applications for all terms year-round but please note the following deadlines:

  • April 15 for internships starting in June
  • June 15 for internships starting in September
  • October 15 for internships starting in January

Interns are a vital part of the Oxford American’s print and digital production teams. The duties of an intern include evaluating manuscript submissions, participating in the planning of issues, fact-checking and proofreading stories, drafting posts for social media, and creating and maintaining digital content for the website. Interns are encouraged to participate in our off-site concerts and readings, generate article ideas, and to write for oxfordamerican.org.

Applications should include a cover letter, resume, and one writing sample of 5-10 pages in length. Your sample could be one long piece or a collection of short pieces. Please specify the term for which you are applying.

Submit your application using this form. Simply create a Submittable account and follow the instructions to attach your materials.

Thank you for your interest.
