About American Society of Magazine Editors

The Magazine Publishers of America (MAP, formerly the American Society of Magazine Editors) was founded in 1963 and is headquartered in New York City, the publishing capital of the world.  It is the professional organization for editors of all print and online magazines that are edited, published and sold in the United States.

MPA arranges internships with participating member magazines for college juniors.  The program allows interns to work in the editorial offices of publications ranging from business to consumer magazines.  Interns do much the same work as journalists, researching articles, proofreading, copy editing, interviewing, covering press conferences and attending editorial meetings.  Reporting and writing opportunities may also be available at some publications.

Eligibility

Open to all full-time students with a 3.0 GPA or higher.  Applicants must be journalism or liberal arts majors actively involved in campus journalism.  Non-U.S. citizens are eligible if they have a work visa.
