Editorial Intern


First printed as INSIDE THE FOX CITIES in 1984, FOX CITIES Magazine has, with the support of the community, transformed from a black and white tabloid-format into a full-color, glossy publication covering the Fox Cities. Anticipated for its respected and sometimes unexpected views of the place we called home, FOX CITIES Magazine is committed to sharing the experience of life in Northeast Wisconsin, including food & dining, people, history, homes, health & wellness, the arts and, the all important, Not To Be Missed Events Calendar. Our specialty publications include the biannual Arts Guide; the City Guide, a relocation resource and our Dining Guide. Over the years, we have produced custom pieces for community organizations and nonprofits as well. We are proud to have been selected to produce Ovation — the official program book of the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center. Much like the magazine, our digital products offer a high-quality, local, authentic lifestyle guide for an affluent, intelligent, active audience.


Position Details

Editorial Intern
Northeast Wisconsin
Appleton , WI

Come join the talented team at FOX CITIES Magazine. We offer internships in our editorial department, providing students with experience in the day-to-day operations of a monthly publication and up-to-the-minute digital presence.

Balancing a variety of responsibilities, intern duties run the gamut from completing writing assignments to updating the many facets of foxcitiesmagazine.com. Interns attend events, interview local leaders, write blog posts and craft meaningful stories about life in the Fox Cities. Interns do not fetch coffee. There are ample writing opportunities available on topics such as the arts scene, dining trends, home, health and personality profiles. FOX CITIES Magazine is dedicated to equipping editorial interns with real life experience; it matters to us that you leave our company with materials for your portfolios. We offer flexible scheduling within the 9-5 timeframe. Interns are expected to commit to roughly 8-10 hours per week. 

As an intern, you will:

  • Assist with story research
  • Update foxcitiesmagazine.com
  • Proofread and fact-check copy for print and online
  • Set up and conduct interviews with sources
  • Write pullout pieces, Artist Spotlights and features
  • Contribute to the FCM blog 
  • Participate in editorial planning meetings

Must be a sophomore, junior or senior studying journalism or English with previous print and online writing experience preferred. Proficiency in various social media platforms and blogging required. Candidates should be enthusiastic and motivated idea generators who are willing to learn, able to meet deadlines and be flexible. Those content with the status quo or afraid of approaching strangers for interviews need not apply.

Fun, flexible work environment. The internship is unpaid, but students can choose to pursue college credit as an option.
