The Philanthropy Roundtable seeks an editorial intern for the winter/spring 2013 semester in its Washington, D.C., offices.
The Roundtable maintains an active program of publishing both in print and online. In addition to its quarterly magazine, Philanthropy, and its website (www.philanthropyroundtable.org), the Roundtable publishes monographs, guidebooks for donors, and other educational materials.
The editorial intern is principally responsible for assisting the editors with the publication of Philanthropy, the production of new guidebooks, and the maintenance of the website. Daily assignments will include producing original, creative material; copy-editing and proofreading; securing permissions; and assisting the editors with routine administrative work and database management. Demonstrated superior writing skills may open opportunities to compose original, bylined articles.
This internship is open to undergraduates and graduate students of any major, as well as recent graduates. The position requires a person with highly developed writing and editing skills and some experience with standard office operations, as well as a high level of discretion and a temperament suited to working with leaders in the business and philanthropic communities. Editorial interns should be task-oriented, flexible, and finely attuned to detail. At all times, they will be expected to conduct themselves with the highest standards of professional integrity.
The editorial intern will be expected to work approximately 30 hours per week, starting in January and ending in May. (Precise hours and days are flexible.) The intern will receive a stipend of $1,000 per month.
Please email a cover letter describing your interest in the position and your familiarity (if any) with philanthropy, a resume of relevant experience, and two samples of your writing or reporting to Evan Sparks, Managing Editor, at esparks -at- philanthropyroundtable.org.
