Internship Program

A weekly newspaper with a circulation of 57,000, the South Philly Review publishes Thursdays serving readers door-to-door and online at southphillyreview.com. With its news; opinion; arts and entertainment; food and drink; and sports sections, interns can see the creation of a newspaper from the ground up. College-level students and those looking for post-school real-world journalism experience are welcome to check out the Review's Internship Program.

 

Editorial Internship

Learn the many facets of journalism, including, but not limited to, fact-checking, creative writing, interviewing, news judgment, article selection, the importance of accuracy and, if meeting certain benchmarks, going out on assignment for the newspaper and/or the website. All interns have their own workstation with Internet access. The workweek can be designed around other jobs, obligations, school or commitments.

There is no compensation for internships, but interns may receive college credit as well as bylines on articles and Word on the Street. Students must be available 10 to 15 hours a week.

Please include a resume, published clips or writing samples along with a cover letter telling us about yourself and if you have interest in any one area — sports, features, hard news — so we can tailor your internship to your interests. Also note if you have any experience or interest in Web-related work that may include monitoring our Facebook and Twitter pages in addition to assisting with our website, which may require some HTML knowledge. Tell us your availability, school schedule or both, as well as a projected start date and how long you think you will be taking the internship.

 

Photography Internship

Gain hands-on experience working with a staff photographer and staff writers; accompanying the staff photographer on assignments; arranging photo assignments and concepts with staff members; delivering photos on deadline; and, if meeting certain benchmarks, going out on assignment for the newspaper. If interested, students will have access to the art director to learn about the design phase of the newspaper.

Applicants must have a working knowledge of Photoshop, access to transportation and a digital camera. Students must be available 10 to 15 hours a week, preferably a Monday or Tuesday to get the maximum benefit of the program.

There is no compensation for internships, but interns will receive bylines on photos, including the restaurant review and Word on the Street.

Please submit a portfolio, resume and a cover letter telling us about yourself. Tell us your availability, school schedule or both, as well as a projected start date and how long you think you will be taking the internship.
