Christian Chronicle seeks student interns

The Christian Chronicle, an Oklahoma City-based international newspaper for Churches of Christ, seeks a college student to serve as a reporting intern for the spring semester and future semesters.

The Chronicle is a professional, nonprofit publication that has earned more than 25 awards from the Associated Church Press and the Society of Professional Journalists since 2005. One of our recent interns, Jonathan Cannon, is a winner in the annual Oklahoma SPJ contest for work he did with the Chronicle. Our writers have reported from at least 40 states and more than two dozen countries.

The successful applicant will report and write stories for the Web and print editions of the Chronicle, which serves more than 250,000 readers across the nation and around the world.

Our preferred candidate is:
• A journalism major with experience writing for a campus publication and/or a professional newspaper or Web site.
• A member of the Churches of Christ.
• An enthusiastic reporter and writer committed to the highest standards of journalism and eager to gain experience and collaborate with seasoned professionals.

This is not a paying position, but in most cases, students can work with their universities to receive academic credit. Telecommuting is an option for students not in the Oklahoma City area. Please send a letter of interest, clips and references to Managing Editor Bobby Ross Jr. at Questions also may be directed to that e-mail address.
