’The Nation’ Editorial Internship

Our editorial internship program offers two internship sessions per year. Editorial interns experience a comprehensive immersion into The Nation and’s editorial processes. Interns’ primary responsibilities include fact-checking for the magazine and website, providing research support to Nation writers and editors, and assisting with production on Interns are not expected to arrive with fact-checking or digital media experience and will be extensively trained in those areas, though a familiarity with The Nation and the range of issues we cover is essential. All interns are based at the magazine’s office in New York City.

Interns also participate in educational seminars with journalists, academics, and activists who come by our offices to speak to interns about their work. Recent guests have included Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Eric Foner, author Vivian Gornick, critic Emily Nussbaum, and writer/academic Melissa Harris-Perry. Interns are encouraged to suggest people they would like to come in and speak with the group.

The internship is full-time, five days a week. (Interns work 35 hours per week.)

Applicants must submit the following:

  • A cover letter that explains why you want to work for The Nation. Please mention Nation writers you follow and/or Nation pieces you’ve enjoyed.

  • A resume.

  • Two letters of recommendation with contact information for the referees included. Letters may be emailed directly by recommenders to Miguel Salazar at, or may be uploaded with the rest of your application materials.

  • Answers to the application questions.
