Each semester we search the Virginia countryside far and wide for the perfect set of interns to complete the RVANews team. Perhaps, this year, you are the droids interns that we’re looking for.

This semester we need to fill two specific roles.

Editorial

As the editorial intern, you will become an important part of the RVANews staff, working with our team to brainstorm and develop content for our website. We’ll expect you to not only produce feature-length stories but also assist with the daily development and implementation of our regular content.

You will be held to the standards of style, accuracy, fairness, and deadlines maintained by RVANews and will be responsible for completing necessary research, making contacts, and establishing sources during the internship period.

Intern Requirements

  • 15 hours per week (majority in-office hours)
  • Multiple stories (~750 words) per month
  • One long-form feature article (greater than 2500 words) per semester

This position is based out of our office located at 1520 W. Main Street. Some local travel will be required for research and interviews. You must be able to provide your own transportation.

The position is unpaid. However, it is eligible for class credit if approved by your school.

To apply: please e-mail a cover letter, two writing samples, and a list of three potential stories pertaining to the Richmond-area that you’d be interested in covering to scott@rvanews.com with “Editorial Intern” in the subject line.
