Double X Is Looking for Spring Interns

Are you the perfect fit?

Intern for Slate

Slate's Washington, D.C., office is hiring interns for the spring to help with the magazine's Double X section. Candidates must be available at least two days per week, preferably Tuesday and Wednesday to assist with the Double X Gabfest. They must be highly organized, have a proven interest in women’s issues, and be very familiar with Slate. They must also be able to work quickly, efficiently, and without much supervision. For the right candidate, there may be opportunity for occasional writing. Candidates must be full-time students (in college or graduate school).

To apply, email a cover letter that clearly outlines your availability and cultural interests, a résumé, a short critique of any Double X piece from the last year (no more than 300 words), and three clips or writing samples (links are fine, but no PDF files) to slatedcinterns@gmail.com. Please use the subject line "Slate Double X Internship." The application deadline is Jan. 18, 2013.
