The Washington Informer seeks interns year-round for its annual journalism program. College and high school students often apply. The internship experience is designed to provide opportunities for students to develop professional skills with on-the-job responsibilities surrounding the production of a community newspaper both print and digital. The internships may last from several months or up to a year. Students become part of the newspaper staff and are immersed with a myriad of tasks surrounding writing, editing, marketing, advertising, public relations, graphic design, blogging, broadcast journalism, and other duties as assigned.
OUR INTERNS @ WORK 2018-2019
Washington Informer interns, Diamond Durant, Tyvan Burns, Lauryn Hill, and Denver Lark spent several weeks pounding the pavement, engaging with residents, and learning the intricate mechanics of working as a journalist in the nation’s capital. Durant, Burns, Hill, and Lark found the newsroom and their respective beats a kind of professional laboratory where they enhanced their skills while gaining unparalleled instruction in the techniques and disciplines of professional journalism.
