The successful candidate must have the ability to work from home, including having access to a computer and the internet.

      Applications Open for Columbia Publishing Course in NYC 

      Applications are being acccepted for the 2021 session of the Columbia Publishing Course. There is a weekly drop-in info session for the Columbia Publishing Course, unique to the colleges participating in the D'Aprix Sweeney Family Fellowship.

      From February 17th until March 10th, a session will be held every Wednesday from 12-1pm EST. Students will be able to ask questions about the course and the fellowship. They can register for the event here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/info-session-columbia-publishing-course-daprix-sweeney-family-fellowship-tickets-140861952893

      Careers in publishing have always attracted people with talent and energy and a love of reading. The Columbia Publishing Course was originally founded in 1947 at Radcliffe College in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where it thrived as the Radcliffe Publishing Course. In 2001, the course moved to Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism.

      New York City is the heart of American publishing, and the Publishing Course has taken every advantage of its current location while building on its strong legacy. For seventy-four years, the Publishing Course has provided an intensive introduction to all aspects of book and magazine publishing, from evaluations of original manuscripts to the sales and marketing of finished products. Students learn from writers, editors, publishers, design directors, advertising experts, publicists, and writers—all are leaders in the industry, and many are course graduates.

      More than one hundred publishing professionals come to the Publishing Course each summer to describe the nature of their work, conduct workshops and seminars, and answer questions in classroom discussions and informal sessions. The curriculum is very intensive. Students learn about publishing through a rigorous schedule of lectures and group activities and by completing professionally evaluated assignments. By spending time with speakers and instructors in in-depth discussions, working on assignments after classes end, and interacting with likeminded colleagues for six weeks, students take part in a total-immersion program that cannot be duplicated by a series of part-time courses. In the process, students discover a capacity to assimilate and produce more than they ever imagined possible. The Publishing Course allows students to compare book, magazine, and digital publishing, which helps them determine their career preferences.

      During the first weeks, the course concentrates on book publishing— from manuscript to bound book, from bookstore sale to movie deal. Students study every element of the process: manuscript evaluation, agenting, editing, design, production, publicity, sales, e-books, and marketing.

      Students also learn about different types of publishing houses, publishing strategies, and career paths. The class then divides into small groups for a seven-day book workshop. Each workshop group simulates the operation of a publishing house, giving students a chance to apply what they’ve learned and to gain hands-on experience in a particular area of book publishing.

      The second section of the course is devoted to magazines and digital media. Magazine and web professionals lecture on every facet of print and digital publication, from planning, writing, and design to marketing, promotion, and distribution. Through lectures and regular assignments, students learn what it takes to publish a successful magazine and launch a profitable website.

      During the magazine and digital workshop, student groups develop proposals for new print and online publications, researching possible audiences, establishing editorial mission statements, designing layouts and wireframes, assessing competitors, determining potential advertisers, and developing a branding strategy.

      By the end of the six weeks, course graduates have a greater understanding of book, magazine, and digital publishing than many people working in the field do. The final week of the publishing course ties together everything students have learned in the previous five weeks and features lectures, field trips, and additional career guidance.

      2021 Editorial Internships

      The American Prospect

      is devoted to promoting informed discourse on public-policy matters from a progressive perspective through narrative interpretation of complex issues. We don’t just make magazines, we make a difference.

      The Prospect hosts three classes of interns each year with flexible dates ranging from January to April; May to August; and September to December.

      Editorial interns assist with research, fact-checking, social media, data entry and library services for both the print magazine and the daily website. Interns are encouraged to contribute editorially, writing book briefs and articles as assigned, and participating in generating story ideas, as well as pursuing their own projects under the guidance of Prospect staff. We encourage interns to fully integrate themselves into the Prospect’s editorial operations while taking full advantage of the public events only available in Washington, D.C.

      This is the perfect internship for journalism, political science, and economics majors. Juniors, seniors and grad students are encouraged to apply. Full and part time internships available; stipend is $70 per day.

      Here's what recent interns have to say:

      I had the opportunity to fact-check and contribute research to an array of complex policy stories, as well as to pitch and write my own long-form features. I had the pleasure of working with an ambitious, encouraging staff who treated me like an essential member of the team. There’s no better place to launch your career as a political reporter. -- Claire Wang, Columbia Graduate School of Journalism, Class of 2019, Fall 2019 intern

      The Prospect’s internship program was an invaluable experience for me. From fact-checking and research to developing original stories, I was regarded as a collaborative partner and young journalist, not as mere temporary labor. The Prospect takes its interns seriously—and in turn, interns contribute meaningfully to independent, progressive journalism. -- Isaac Scher, Freelance Reporter, Fall 2019 intern
