CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (December 2014) – Ivy Publications, Charlottesville, Virginia’s award-winning niche lifestyle magazine publisher, is pleased to announce a newly created internship program open for applications from smart, motivated university students and recent graduates. Ivy Publications editorial interns gain valuable experience in the journalism field. Interns write, edit, fact-check and work on special projects with our editorial staff.

• Assist editors with special projects, such as our annual CharlottesvilleFamily Favorites awards, Bumble’s Summer Giveaway and our new Weddings blog.
• Write articles that will get published in the magazines and online.
• Fact-check articles for publication.
• Maintain the online calendar.

In addition, motivated interns will have the opportunity to learn about online and social media and to explore their particular interest areas.
