Editorial Internship Program

Kansas City magazine offers three-month editorial internships year-round. Internships are hands-on and involve a variety of responsibilities as well as the opportunity to regularly interact with the editorial staff.

Primary duties include fact-checking stories, writing shorter stories and contributing research to larger stories and feature packages. Interns also enter descriptions for the monthly calendar and listings sections and write web exclusives for kansascitymag.com.

We offer an honorarium of $250 per month. Interns are expected to work approximately 20 hours per week. However, Kansas City magazine is currently fully remote, and we ask interns to work 20 hours on a flexible schedule, aside from a weekly one-hour meeting.
