About Village Voice

In publication since 1955, The Village Voice is the largest weekly alternative newspaper in the country. It focuses on features relating to "opinionated arts, culture, music, dance, film and theater reviews, web dispatches and comprehensive entertainment listings" and reaches over half a million readers weekly. Over the years, The Voice earned a reputation for its groundbreaking investigations of New York City politics and for being the foremost authority on the NYC downtown vibe. It has also received numerous journalism awards, including George Polk Awards, Front Page Awards, Deadline Club Awards and Pulitzer Prizes. The Village Voice is owned by Village Voice Media, which merged with New Times in 2006 and now owns alt-weekly newspapers across the country.

Interns work as assistants to editors and staff writers in the editorial, arts and culture, and photography departments. Past interns have worked alongside writers James Ridgeway and Wayne Barnett, as well as columnists Michael Musto and Toni Schlesinger.
