Candidates must be available 15 hours a week (and available at least the majority of one full day), preferably more. Candidates must be highly organized, be responsible, and have a proven interest in the arts. They must also be able to work quickly, efficiently, and without much supervision. Those able to give a 10-week commitment (starting in September) are preferred.

To apply, e-mail a cover letter that clearly outlines your availability and cultural interests, a résumé, a short critique of any "Culturebox" from the last year (no more than 300 words), and three clips or writing samples (please use Microsoft Word) to Juliet Lapidos at juliet.lapidos@slate.com. Please use the subject line "Slate Internship." The deadline for receipt of applications is July 30, 2010.

Slate's DC office is also hiring interns for the fall semester. Responsibilities include regularly providing research and administrative assistance, contributing to editorial projects, and occasional writing for the magazine. The position is available to current full-time students only.

Candidates must be available at least 15 hours a week (and available at least the majority of one full day), preferably more. Candidates must be highly organized, be responsible, and have a proven fluency in politics as much of the workload is likely to involve the midterm elections. They must also be able to work quickly, efficiently, and without much supervision. Those able to give a 10-week commitment (starting in September) are preferred.

To apply, e-mail a résumé, a 300-word critique of any Slate story from the last year relating to politics, policy, the law, or other Washington-related topics, and three clips or writing samples to dcoffice@slate.com. Please use the subject line "Slate DC Internship." Do not include a cover letter—if you do, it will be a sign to us that you do not follow directions well. The deadline for receipt of applications is Aug. 6, 2010.
