INSIDER editorial fellow, travel (FALL/WINTER)
Editorial | New York, NY | Internship
INSIDER is hiring a paid editorial fellow to write about travel.
The Insider Fellowship Program is for early career journalists who want to spend six months learning from a newsroom full of passionate, dedicated journalists. Fellows are assigned to teams and become experts in digital storytelling. They produce real work that is distributed to our audience of millions, and by the end of six months are prepared for the next phase of their journalism careers. For more information on the Insider Fellowship Program, see here.
Fellows on our lifestyle team write about all things lifestyle; this position will have an emphasis on travel. They spend their time doing meaningful work: researching, writing, pitching and producing visual features — even breaking news if the timing is right. They have the opportunity to contribute to stories like these visual features about a treehouse-style hotel in Costa Rica, a dream job on a cruise that pays people to travel the world, and places to go for a once-in-a-lifetime trip.
All our editorial fellows should have:
Experience reporting and writing (school publications are great)
A passion for digital storytelling and voracious reading habits
Familiarity with digital and social media
Ability to work quickly and collaboratively with a fast-paced team
Light HTML and/or Photoshop experience
Proofreading and copyediting skills
Additionally, for the lifestyle team, we’re looking for someone with the following:
An interest in covering lifestyle, particularly travel
Awareness of travel trends and hacks
Familiarity with the types of travel stories INSIDER publishes
Ability to create visual features that tell compelling stories through photos, like this piece about a bride who has worn her wedding dress in 33 countries while on her honeymoon
This is an hourly paid fellowship based out of our New York office. Fellows are encouraged to work 40 hours a week, and fellowships run for six months. Start date for this position will be in September.
INSIDER is great journalism about what passionate people actually want to know. That’s everything from news to food, celebrity to science, politics to sports and all the rest. It’s smart. It’s fearless. It’s fun. We push the boundaries of digital storytelling. Our mission is to inform and inspire.
