Last fortnight, I was lucky enough to be interning at the New Statesman, a left-leaning weekly political & cultural magazine.
It was a fantastic experience. I was given plenty of advice and feedback on my work. I also met a number of writers I have looked up to for a long time and attempted (often unsuccessfully) to hide my pathetic, squealing fandom. I would recommend a placement at the Statesman to any/all budding journalists with an interest in the areas that they cover.
Whilst I was there, as well as helping around the office I was given the opportunity to write on a wide range of subjects. I penned articles on politics, business, TV and feminism.
If you’re interested, I’ve linked to some of them below:
