How would you like to intern for the coolest company in the green sphere?

OK, we may be a little biased, but our editorial interns are not coffee fetchers or pencil pushers – they’re important writing and editing machines!

"I feel like this internship fused together my two biggest interests: the environment and writing. It gave me a chance to see real-world environmental journalism in action, and it's definitely the career for me." - Chloe' Skye, Summer Editorial Intern


If you have a love for the environment, passion for writing and a knack for editing, we want you! We’re looking for interns to fill both telecommuting and New York-based positions.

Our past interns have come from the University of Colorado, Princeton University, University of Missouri School of Journalism and Temple University.

Interns will receive at least 10 published clips with bylines over the course of the program.

What we’re searching for:


– A basic understanding of environmental topics including recycling, proper disposal, cradle-to-cradle and renewable energy

– The ability to coordinate and conduct interviews with secondary sources. This includes researching contact information that would be appropriate for the subject

– An understanding of translating scientific or government terminology into content designed for a consumer audience

– Knowledge of AP Style


– The ability to produce content with a consistent, neutral tone

What you’ll be doing around here:

– Complete assigned topics utilizing research and supporting interviews and/or information

– Deliver articles in a tone that is consistent with Earth911’s style and voice


– Assist the staff with posts and activities within various social media communities such as Twitter and Facebook

– Review outdated content for updated statistics, proper grammar, AP Style and fresh formatting

So, are you interested yet?

This internship is for credit only. Candidates must be enrolled in college-level courses and receive written permission from their institution. The application deadline is September 3. Internship starts in mid-September and runs through the first of December, depending on credit requirements of university.
