Editorial Intern

Headwaters Magazine and Content Editorial Internship


The Colorado Foundation for Water Education is seeking a creative, informed, enthusiastic and talented editorial intern to work on Headwaters magazine, the blog and other content and publications. The intern will work closely with our Headwaters editor to report on water issues in Colorado, produce original news stories, graphics and/or multimedia packages, develop story ideas and content plans for the web, and have the opportunity to be involved in every part of the editorial process.  

The Colorado Foundation for Water Education is a Denver-based nonprofit dedicated to reaching a statewide audience with quality information, education and leadership programs focused on water. We believe water is our most valuable resource, that decisions about water affect everyone, and that water is too important for citizens not to be informed and engaged. Headwaters magazine is CFWE’s flagship publication, dedicated to in-depth reporting on the latest challenges and trends in water. Printed three times each year, Headwaters reaches 10,000+ people with every issue. In addition to the magazine, digital content programs include a blog, website, social media, webinars, and a radio partnership with Rocky Mountain Community Radio stations.

Join us for the fall semester and gain valuable experience working on a top-notch publication for a big state. You’ll work primarily from our office in uptown Denver.

Required Skills:

  • Demonstrated interest in natural resources, preferably water
  • Excellent written/verbal communication
  • Commitment to accuracy and attention to detail
  • Strong research abilities
  • Passion for journalism
  • Experience with social media platforms

Sept.-Dec. 2017 | 10 hours per week | unpaid
