Hoard's Dairymen Editorial Intern

Hoard’s Dairyman is looking for their next editorial intern! A flyer promoting the internship can be found here
    Interested students do not need to be journalism majors but should show a strong interest in writing. A majority of the summer experience will be spent working directly with the Hoard’s Dairyman editors and writing editorial content for the magazine.

The internship will include: 
    ·         Writing for the magazine — Our intern writes the Farm Flashes page, which appears in every issue. The intern will also write longer feature articles and other shorter pieces for the magazine.
    ·         Online communications — The intern would be a regular contributor to HD Notebook, our blog that is updated every weekday. There may also be opportunities to write for our e- newsletter, Hoard’s Dairyman Intel.
    ·         The World Dairy Expo Supplement — Every summer, the intern works with the editorial team to write articles, plan layout, and edit copy for the annual World Dairy Expo supplement.
    ·         The opportunity to travel — During the Hoard’s Dairyman internship experience, students typically spend two to three weeks traveling to meetings and visiting dairy farms across the country. The purpose is to write farm stories and gather round table leads, along with visiting and documenting the story of National Dairy Shrine’s Student recognition winner.
    The internship will be based out of Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin. Interested students should mail a current résumé (including college address), transcript and cover letter, along with three written letters of recommendation, to Abby Bauer, Associate Editor, 28 Milwaukee Ave. West, Fort Atkinson, WI 53538. All application materials are due by October 16, 2019.
