Entry-level writer @ Smithsonian magazine

Smithsonian, a 2 million-circulation monthly magazine about science, culture and history, offers a full-time paid writing internship. If you're looking to break into magazine journalism, this opportunity is a rare plum.

The 6-month internship begins in July and involves writing and reporting, primarily for the "Around the Mall" department and the magazine's Web site.

"Candidates should have a proven aptitude for writing and, preferably, a strong background in science, culture, history or one of the other areas in which the magazine specializes," the ad states. "A recent undergraduate or graduate degree is a must."

By May 1, send a cover letter, resume, contact info for three references and 3-5 clips to Megan Gambino, Attn: Intern Application, Smithsonian Magazine, Capital Gallery, Suite 6001, MRC 513 Box 37012, Washington, DC 20013.
