2023 Henry Fuhrmann Multiplatform Editing Summer Internship

Submissions will be accepted for the copy editing internship created in honor of Henry Fuhrmann, a former assistant managing editor at the Los Angeles Times and a longtime volunteer for the Asian American Journalists Assn. He oversaw the copy desk at The Times and was instrumental in determining its standards and practices.  The internship is jointly funded by The Times and the Los Angeles chapter of AAJA. The copy editing internship does not require a car. Submit a brief cover letter; resume with three references; a school transcript (unofficial is acceptable); one-page personal essay; and links to any online work.

Applicants must be actively working toward an undergraduate or graduate degree and must be eligible to work in the United States. Graduates may qualify if you’ve finished school within six months of the start of the internship. Internships are for students who have not worked professionally as staff journalists.

The deadline to apply for the multiplatform editing internship is Jan. 10, 2023. 

All applicants will receive an email notification of the committee’s decision by March 1, 2023.
