About Atlantic, The

Founded in 1857, The Atlantic was created as a literary and cultural commentary magazine by a group of writers that included Harriet Beecher Stowe, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry Longfellow.  Today, The Atlantic covers topics ranging from politics and foreign policy to science and technology, to arts and culture.  Today, the Atlantic is read by 1.5 million people.

Interns at The Atlantic help to review thousands of unsolicited submissions received by the magazine each year; assist with fact-checking for the magazine and research for the website; participate in informational seminars with editors, writers and members of the production and art department; and assist with assorted administrative tasks.  The Atlantic also offers internships in its business divisions.
