About Harper's Magazine

First published in 1850, Harper’s is the oldest monthly magazine in the United States. It’s also one of the most prestigious, having received numerous honors including 12 National Magazine Awards. Harper’s often features journalism, essays and short fiction works by authors including Joyce Carol Oates, Richard Russo and Michael Chabon.

Notoriously competitive, internships are available in the magazine’s art and editorial departments. Art interns perform page layout, color separation and photo research, as well as correspond with freelancers. On the editorial side, interns research items for the Harper’s index section, perform fact-checking duties and screen unsolicited manuscripts.


Open to all current college students, recent graduates and grad students.
