C-VILLE Weekly is currently hiring interns for summer 2020. Although our internships are unpaid, we offer college credit where applicable, and the opportunity for you to get real-world journalism experience—no coffee runs for you, unless of course you WANT to bring us coffee, for which we will be eternally grateful. We’re also partial to pie.

Several of our interns have transitioned into freelance writers once their internships have ended; our goal is to cultivate great writers who understand our voice and viewpoint in the local community.

Think you’re the right fit for one of the internships below? Send a note to the appropriate editor and include your résumé and three to five clips.


As a news intern, you’ll pitch, report, and write articles and news briefs that will be published online and in our print edition. You’ll also post stories through WordPress and help manage social media. You’ll gain experience in a professional newsroom and learn what makes this town tick. Our news team is especially interested in equity, development, climate, and local government. Some  reporting experience is preferred, and a sense of humor is a must. Contact editor-in-chief Laura Longhine at


Our Culture section covers what’s happening around town, from restaurants and wineries to music and visual art. As a Culture intern you’ll work on our weekly events calendar and have the opportunity to pitch and write stories and picks. You’ll also post stories through WordPress and help manage social media.
