Internship Opportunities


Want Publishing Experience?

Rock and Ice and Trail Runner offer intern opportunities. Now is your chance to roll up your sleeves and get dirty in print and online!



Info: 
Both magazines offer internships in the editorial department and the advertising department throughout the year. Internships are unpaid, but typically receive college credit and earn valuable experience and an add-on to their resumes. Dates and hours are flexible, but interns should plan on working at least 20 hours a week. Internships are in Carbondale, Colorado. Additional paying work in the area is usually not difficult to find, but housing can be an issue. Look for housing ahead of time! Please bring a laptop, if possible.

Editorial Internship

Duties: 
Internship duties vary depending on experience, expertise and willingness to learn, but typically include:

  • Writing magazine pieces
  • Writing website pieces, especially news (we'd like to see at least one news item posted every day)
  • Researching stories and fact checking
  • Copy editing
  • Brainstorming for article and marketing

We ask each intern to arrive with at least three article ideas.

Requirements: 
Interns must be motivated and self-sufficient, and expect to work on their own. Interns need to seek out ideas, subjects and projects and follow through. Good candidates will demonstrate a willingness to learn, have writing/editing experience and climbing or trail running experience, and detailed knowledge of the magazine.

Perks:

  • Get the inside scoop on how magazines really work
  • Hang with an office of fun, outdoorsy folks who want to make you part of the team
  • Experience the world-class climbing and running on Colorado's Western Slope
  • Break into the magazine field
  • Go bouldering every Tuesday night

If interested, please send resume, cover letter and writing clips (college pubs are OK) to Alison Osius

John Long: What I've Learned
John Long, original Stonemaster and climbing's most popular writer, spills his guts.
Black Sheep
Wharton entering the crux (5.13) of the Black Canyon's hardest free pitch to date, and (below) one move later, the real business.IN AP...In April, Josh Wharton and Mike Pennings completed The Black Sheep (5.12 A0), a new route in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, Colorado. Originally Pennings' vision, the line took the two three years to finish.
Jules Cho
I met Jules Cho at the New Jersey Rock Gym -- we were both setting for the Gravity Brawl comp, last March. She told me she was into archery, and brought her bow and arrow to the gym. I had her point her arrow right at the camera -- a nearly fatal mistake. Jules accidentally let the string slip, and the arrow zipped right past my head.
Charlie Fowler American Alpinist
That Charlie Fowler would meet his end while doing what he loved is no huge surprise given the sheer volume of his climbing. At age 52, he'd racked up three and a half decades of it, and had carried his quiet air of a seasoned survivor from hard rock to the high-risk games of alpine climbing and soloing.
Gear Review: The Lifeproof iPhone Case
Climbing is inherently hazardous to the life of your precious iPhone, due to the wild environments and heights that we expose the fragile electronic device to. Not to worry, a case manufacturer by the name of Lifeproof has you covered.
