Chesapeake Bay Media is looking for summer interns seeking college credit for the 2023 season.
CBM is about celebrating the very best of the Chesapeake Bay lifestyle, showcasing the culture, news, events and people of our region. We have been a trusted source for our community for more than 50 years. We produce a periodic magazine, website, weekly emails and daily social media. Additionally, we create and distribute several custom publications for both local and national interests.
Our internship program allows students to spend time with multiple departments within the CBM organization, with a focus on writing stories for publication, storytelling through video, editing, proofreading, social media, and story generation for our various products including our rapidly-growing CBM lifestyle digital content, Bay Bulletin news site, and flagship Chesapeake Bay Magazine. Interns will be given the opportunity to work closely with employees on other tasks that are of specific interest to them, from videojournalism to magazine production and digital media.
Interns will attend editorial or other planning meetings once a week in the office or via Microsoft Teams if necessary. Interns should expect to work both in our office at 410 Severn Ave., in Eastport, Annapolis, MD and remotely as necessary. Hours will be flexible to accommodate different schedules in different departments and will be agreed upon with interns prior to the start of the internship term.
Mentors will be Kathy Knotts, CBM Digital Content Editor; Meg Walburn Viviano, CBM Editorial Director; and Jefferson Holland, Chesapeake Bay Magazine Editor.
Candidates should have strong communication and writing skills and be organized, deadline-driven and familiar with the Chesapeake Bay region and its culture. Video shooting and editing experience is a plus!
Please send resume, transcript, and cover letter highlighting your specific media interests and your ties to the Chesapeake Bay to Meg Walburn Viviano ([email protected]).
