About Mother Jones

Award-winning Mother Jones magazine was founded by the Foundation for National Progress (FNP) to investigate and report on important social and political issues. The FNP launched Mother Jones magazine in 1976 and in 1993 to bring uncompromising reporting to a broad national audience.

Editorial interns fact-check articles, conduct research for upcoming issues, pitch, write original content for the website and magazine, contribute to blogs and attend editorial and web meetings. Exceptional interns may be asked to take part in an additional six-month fellowship program, in which they are given increased responsibilities. The communications intern implements marketing strategies through activities that include social media, promotion and outreach. About 10 percent of fellows are offered full-time positions.


Most applicants are college graduates with reporting, communications, activism and/or research experience. Individuals with online blogging and multimedia skills are desired.
