WSJ seeks interns to work in book reviews and arts in review sections

October 10, 2019

The Wall Street Journal’s book reviews and arts in review departments are seeking beginning journalists—juniors, seniors or recent graduates with reporting and writing backgrounds at their school newspapers or elsewhere—for 10-week paid summer internships in its New York City office. The internships are an opportunity to get hands-on experience working alongside some of the best opinion writers and editors in the world.

The internships—formally, the Bartley fellowships—honor the section’s former editor, Robert L. (Bob) Bartley. Opportunities will be awarded to young thinkers and writers who intend to pursue a career in journalism or cultural criticism.

The books and arts interns are among several fellows selected each year through an application process that is overseen by senior editors.

The fellow(s) selected to work with the books and arts teams will assist in commissioning reviews, researching, fact-checking and editing content for the print and digital editions of the Journal, contributing to social media and digital production, and will be encouraged to submit their own ideas for exhibitions or other cultural events to review. They may also submit ideas for articles or projects to editors in any part of the opinion section.

Internships are paid, and generally take place during June, July and August, though start dates can be flexible.
