Hone your Writing. Learn about Objectivism. Get Paid.
The Undercurrent seeks applications from qualified students to become part of our growing team. This spring we’ll hire up to two interns to work collaboratively via email with our editorial team, producing content for TU’s blog. Selected interns will be paid by the article, with more money being paid for articles that require more work.
Who: College students seeking experience writing about Objectivism
What: Paid internship, up to $300 for three to four blog posts
When: Spring 2017 (February-May), applications due February 20
Description: Selected interns will participate in the process of producing content for our edited blog that communicates an Objectivist analysis of politics and culture. The internship program permits students to engage with the publication through the production of two types of content: reporting pieces and editorials. Those interested can apply here.
Requirements: Write three to four pieces for TU’s blog and have them approved for publication by our editorial staff. The requirements of the internship can be fulfilled either by writing one editorial piece and three reporting pieces or two editorial pieces and one reporting piece. Editorial pieces will be paid at the rate of $125 each and reporting pieces at the rate of $50 each.
The Undercurrent is a magazine distributed at college campuses and communities across the country. We release a print edition once per semester, and in the interim, regularly post additional articles, blog entries, and campus media responses reports to our website.
The Undercurrent's cultural commentary is based on Ayn Rand's philosophy, Objectivism. Objectivism, which animates Ayn Rand's fiction, is a systematic philosophy of life. It holds that the universe is orderly and comprehensible, that man survives by reason, that his life and happiness comprise his highest moral purpose, and that he flourishes only in a society that protects his individual rights.
