The Oxford American offers a comprehensive editorial internship program for students from Hendrix College. We have full-time and part-time positions available and offer a stipend. Internships begin in January, June, and September, though the program provides some flexibility for starting dates, and the opportunity for interested interns to extend their terms. For the near future, internships will be remote.

The OA is grateful to Hendrix College and the Hendrix-Murphy Foundation Programs in Literature and Language for its generous support and dedication to the literary community of Arkansas.

We accept applications for all terms year-round but please note the following deadlines:

  • April 15 for internships starting in June

  • August 21 for internships starting in September

  • November 30 for internships starting in January
