Texas Monthly

Texas Monthly’s journalism internships are paid and are available each fall, spring, and summer semester to current undergraduate or graduate students or to those who have just graduated. The journalism internships, spread across the following three departments, all involve a mix of education, mentorship, and real-world training in magazine journalism in its myriad forms. The editorial department tells stories through words and photographs, illustrations, and infographics. Our specialties are long-form narrative journalism on topics that have ranged from the incarceration of innocent men to the breaking of a wild mustang; good, old-fashioned service journalism (see our list of the state’s 50 greatest barbecue joints or the 175 places in Texas you should undeniably visit before you die); and stunning photography. But no matter the subject matter or approach, our mission remains simple: to inform and entertain our readers on the past, present, and future of the state in which they live. As an editorial intern, you’ll pitch story ideas, transcribe interviews, fact-check smaller assignments for the magazine, aid in the digitization of forty years’ worth of archived content, assist with writing/research projects for TM’s social media channels, and research a wide range of topics, from food and true crime to politics and culture. An intern with special interests and/or a tenacious attitude will likely be able to take on projects specially tailored to their interests or strengths.
