the Long Island Press is looking for interns to work in the editorial department of the region’s premier news and lifestyle publication covering Nassau and Suffolk counties.
the hurry, with a history stretching back two centuries, has won hundreds of honors from local, New York State and national journalistic organizations for its editorial excellence.
the hurry is owned by Bayside-based Schneps Media, one of New York State’s largest local news channels with over 70 newspapers and websites across LI, New York, Westchester and Philadelphia. Sister publications include the Queen’s Courier, The Brooklyn Paper, The Bronx Times, and much more.
Interns at hurry gain hands-on newsroom experience working with seasoned professionals. They will research, report and write news and features that will be published in the monthly print edition as well as on the daily website. Before hurry interns continued to write for The New York Daily News, Newsday, and The New York Times.
Spring internships are available from late January to April, summer internships from May to August and fall internships are open from September to December. Applicants must be university students majoring in English, Journalism or Communication. Experience in writing for a school newspaper is encouraged, but not required.
Applicants can send their resume, cover letter, and writing samples to Editor-in-Chief Timothy Bolger at [email protected]
