Editorial Intern

Collage of San Diego Magazine covers in Black and White

At San Diego Magazine we explore the San Diego border region in-depth—the people, the food, the culture and the issues that make this corner of the country tick. From the top of the county down into northern Baja, we tell stories that inform and excite, and that inspire our readers to more deeply engage with the various communities that surround us.

The San Diego Magazine editorial internship program offers early career journalists valuable print and digital publishing experience. Interns are an integral part of the edit team, working across both print and digital platforms, contributing to edit meetings, and helping build one of the most exciting legacy regional magazines in the country.

Working directly with SDM’s editorial team, interns dive into every aspect of the magazine, building reporting and storytelling experience while making meaningful contributions to the magazine.

Our ideal interns are eager to learn. Preference will be given to those whose portfolios show strong writing, photography, and videography skills, but most importantly, a genuine interest in regional media and its place in community building and information sharing.

Interns receive training in every aspect of the magazine’s publication. Interns contribute to story ideation, print and digital photography, videography, photo gathering, scheduling, backend web design, and print/digital publication. Interns are also given the opportunity to publish in both the print and digital publication.

San Diego Magazine believes that a diverse newsroom best covers our diverse region. We encourage applications from people whose communities have historically been underrepresented in magazines, including people of color, women, people who identify as LGBTQ, and people with disabilities.
