Internship Opportunity

High Country News is looking for informed and enthusiastic interns to report on natural resource, environmental and community issues in the 11 Western states.

High Country News, published twice-monthly in Paonia, Colo., is a nonprofit newsmagazine and website “for people who care about the West.” The magazine reaches 25,000 subscribers — an estimated 50,000 readers — and the website reaches thousands more, including grassroots activists, public land managers, tribal officials, government policymakers, educators, students and interested citizens.

The Los Angeles Times has written that High Country News is “the most influential environmental journal in the Mountain West,” and according to Newsweek, “High Country News is a must for anyone following land use issues west of the 100th meridian.” Our hard-hitting coverage has won many major journalism awards during the past few years, including:

  • Utne Independent Press Awards for Best Environmental Coverage and Best Local/Regional Coverage
  • Hillman Prize for Magazine Journalism
  • George Polk Award
  • First Person Narrative award from the American Society of Journalists and Authors
  • Science Journalism Award from the American Association for Advancement of Science
  • Walter Sullivan Award for Excellence in Science Journalism
  • James V. Risser Prize for Western Environmental Journalism

Every year, High Country News offers four to six internship positions, each six months long. Two to three new interns join us each June and January; we provide free housing and a $170-per-week stipend. To help defray moving costs, an additional $500 travel stipend is available upon successful completion of the internship. One exceptional candidate from each session may have the option of staying on another six months as an editorial fellow.

Our interns and fellows are a key part of the HCN team; aside from a few minor tasks such as sorting the mail and answering phones, interns spend most of their time researching, interviewing, writing, and developing content — both for print and online. We pride ourselves on fairness, accuracy and good writing, and we expect no less of our interns.

For all of our internship positions, some prior journalism experience and/or education is preferred. We also prefer applicants who are familiar with High Country News and who have lived in the West and are familiar with its environmental and community issues. We strongly encourage Native American, Hispanic, and applicants from other under-represented backgrounds.

All interns work with the staff editors to write news stories for the website and for the newsmagazine, ranging in length from 250 to 1,600 words. Depending on their experience and ability, editorial interns may also get the opportunity to write a 2,500- to 4,000-word feature story. Our editing process is rigorous — all copy goes through two layers of editing and it is not unusual for a story to see six or eight drafts. Reporting is generally conducted over the phone and the Internet, but we do have money to send each intern out into the field at least once to do on-the-ground work.

Our interns go on to become leaders in journalism and politics. They pursue careers as reporters, editors, educators, lawyers, policymakers and freelance writers.

Upcoming start dates and application deadlines are as follows. Applications must be received in our office by the deadline date.

Summer/Fall 2013

Start date – July 1, 2013
End date – December 13, 2013
(Applications must be received by March 11, 2013)

Winter/Spring 2014

Start date – Dec. 30, 2013
End date – mid-June, 2014
(Applications must be received by Oct. 21, 2013)

Applicants should send a cover letter, résumé, contact information for three references (phone and email), and three writing samples (plus multimedia samples, if applicable) to:

Sarah Gilman, Associate Editor

High Country News

P.O. Box 1090

Paonia, CO 81428

Email applications are not accepted (unless you are sending links to multimedia samples). Please send all writing samples as hard copy. We don’t accept electronic materials because we usually receive more than 40 applications per session, and printing and collating each applicant’s materials has proven to be inordinately time-consuming.

Call 970-527-4898 or email sarah (at) hcn.org for further information.

Community Literacy Center News

September 2012: The Community Literacy Center welcomes our 2012-13 interns: Emma Steward (English education), Edward Wells (creative writing), Talisha Haltiwanger (rhetoric/composition), and Lauren Alessi (sociology).  Each will lead a team of workshop facilitators in a community writing group this year.  The CLC also trained 6 new SpeakOut writing workshop volunteers.
