Cottages & Gardens Publications (www.candgpublications.com) is looking for an energetic editorial intern from the end of August/beginning of September through the academic year. The intern works closely with our small staff in our Westport, CT, office to help produce Connecticut Cottages & Gardens, a publication covering design, architecture and lifestyle trends. Responsibilities include researching editorial content, fact checking, compiling resources, captioning, coordinating some front-of-book columns and general editorial/administrative support. There are opportunities to write, help produce shoots, pitch story ideas and cover the design market.
Qualifications: Undergraduate English/humanities majors are encouraged to apply. The ideal candidate is a courteous, professional, self-motivated, detail-oriented individual who can manage work independently. A positive attitude and a genuine desire to understand the editorial process from start to finish are a must. Candidates must own a car.
Salary: Unpaid, but hours are flexible and students have the chance to work toward published clips and strong professional letters of recommendation. The ideal candidate will be available 12-16 hours a week for the entire academic year. We hope the intern excels so much during the first semester that his/her responsibilities naturally increase during the second.
How to Apply
Please e-mail resume and cover letter to Features Editor Sarah Firshein ’04 at firstname.lastname@example.org. Published clips, short academic essays, or any other materials that speak to your editorial and professional abilities are welcome. Qualified candidates will be interviewed by phone and emailed an edit test later on.
