Interns

WANT PUBLISHING EXPERIENCE?

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

Info: We offer internships in the editorial, art and advertising departments throughout the year. Interns are unpaid, but typically receive college credit and earn valuable experience and an add-on to their resumes. Dates and hours are flexible, but plan to work 20-25 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
