The RFT Is Seeking Summer 2019 Interns



Come learn with us!

We're looking for a few exceptional student journalists to join our newsroom this summer. You'll get a chance to take the pulse of the city, to talk to creative St. Louisans about why they do what they do (and maybe even confront the powers that be with the same question). Working closely with an editor or our art director in a one-on-one mentorship, you'll get to write. You'll get to take photos. You'll get bylines and photo credits. And suffice it to say, the only coffee you'll fetch you'll be your own.

These internships are unpaid, but we're happy to work with your college for course credit, and no matter what, we'll keep your hours part-time so you can also pursue gainful employment. We'll work with your schedule.

If this sounds appealing, please send a cover letter, resume and three samples of published work to Please specify whether you are most interested in photography, food writing, arts writing, digital media or news writing. A ranked list of a few favorites will increase your chances.

We'll need your materials by April 12.
