Swimming World Interns

Swimming World Magazine as part of the International Swimming Hall of Fame is seeking another gifted group of summer writers interested in enhancing their journalism skills and garnering valuable experience to add to their resumes.

The recent fall ‘17-spring ‘18 intern class submitted stories every two weeks and delved into feature writing, race analysis, training studies and event coverage. A large percentage of Swimming World's most-read online content was written by our stellar interns. Our army of interns significantly improved our ability to cover swimming and diving events worldwide!

This summer, we are looking for writers eager to report local swimming happenings, help with event coverage, hone their feature writing skills and dive into historical reference from the International Hall of Fame. This past college season presented some thrilling storylines, and we’re sure this summer will be no different.

  • A brief bio including name, school, conference, major, and class.

  • An aquatics-related writing sample. This may be an analysis piece, a feature story, or a training-specific article. *Please shoot for between 600 and 800 words and abide by AP Style rules.

This internship is conducted via email-- all work can be done remotely.
*Applicants will be notified of their selection by Monday, April 30. Selected applicants will begin the internship Monday, May 7, 2018 and conclude Friday, August 17, 2018.
