The Chariton Valley News Press is offering summer, fall and spring internships for students pursuing a journalism degree. The News Press is located in Salisbury, MO, about an hour north of Columbia, MO, a weekly newspaper covering Chariton County and bordering communities. The paper competes for coverage and advertising with five area newspapers, so applicants should be proactive, hardworking individuals, with a passion and flair for writing and/or photography.

Internships over the summer will focus on news writing, photography and page layout. Fall and spring interships will include a sports intern, whose main focus will be game coverage, feature writing, photography and page layout. Interns will receive a monthly stipend and paid housing for the duration of the intership. Internships can also be for credit, if approved by adviser.
