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

Contact:

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

Climb Safe

John Long: Mountains of Trouble
The cement-bucket drop test, swami belts and the beginning of the end of a fabled climbing club.
El Cap's Hardest: Wings of Steel
The first ascent of the Great Slab on El Cap sparked climbing’s biggest character assassination, a fit that began with chopped ropes and now, nearly 30 years later continues with online vitriol that is piled nearly as high as the Big
Stone itself. With the second ascent of the wall completed just this summer after countless days and some 500 feet of falls, redemption for the FA team may finally be at hand.
Alpine Warriors - History of Alpinists in Yugoslavia
Alpine Warriors, Bernadette McDonald’s history of alpinists in Yugoslavia, has won this year’s award for Mountaineering History at the Banff Mountain Book Competition and is eligible for this year’s Phyllis and Don Munday Award, to be announced at the festival on November 5.
A Sport for All Ages
At this the most lovely old man got up at the furthest and humblest end of the hall, as he had got up on all similar occasions for the past half-century.
Boreal Stingma Shoe Review
Boreal classifies the Stingma as their new high-performance shoe. Unfortunately, the mellow slingshot heel and lacing system don't provide enough tension for serious face climbing, although the shoe strikes a decent balance with comfort.
