Welcoming interns of all abilities, a Journalism Internship in Romania gives interns a huge scope for gaining journalistic experience and a real insight into life in the mountainous Romanian province of Transylvania.
You don't need to speak Romanian to join our Journalism internship. All we ask for is a good standard of written English and the enthusiasm to help put together a magazine that will prove interesting to both locals and visitors wanting to find out more about life in rural Romania. Living in this fascinating country, you'll have no shortage of inspiration for stories to research and write about, greatly enhancing your resume as you do so.
For interns who are on a gap-year looking to get onto a related university course, or those looking for employment following graduation, a Projects Abroad journalism internship can set you on the right track. This journalism internship is also suitable for working journalists and experienced professionals who wish to take a career-break or broaden their horizons.
Our Journalism internship is based in Brasov.You work for a magazine called 'Satul', that translates as 'The Village'. The magazine was created by, and is edited by a young couple, Adrian and Ana Andrei. During their travels through rural Romania, Adrian and Ana were touched by the richness of ancient Romanian traditions that still manage to survive, despite Romania’s increasing globalization. They decided to create “The Village” in order to help keep alive the spirit of rural identity with its many different manifestations in modern Romanian life.
The magazine is printed every two and a half months. There are plans for it to be translated into French and German in the future. Every issue is comprised of about 70 to 100 pages.
The magazine is distributed nationally through a network of well-known book stores, museums, tourist attractions, town halls, traditional restaurants and rural guesthouses. The magazine is also available at festivals, exhibitions, and to subscribers. Some of the magazine’s subscribers are the Romanian Royal House and famous actors, painters, and musicians. The magazine is also distributed internationally, to several different embassies. In this way volunteers’ work is helping to make sure that Romanian traditions and customs are known to both local and foreign readers.
Journalism interns in Romania also contribute to Voices of the World, an online weekly newspaper and magazine that allows aspiring young journalists to express their views, engage in dialogue, and learn about one another through journalistic exploration of topics that greatly affect our world today and their world tomorrow.
Interns who are 25 years old or younger can participate in weekly workshops, undertake assignments for Voices of the World, conduct interviews and write articles. Older interns can work as trainers and coordinators for the local young people involved or the interns who are also participants. In this capacity, they can hold workshops, proofread or edit articles, and discuss ideas for articles
Projects Abroad interns working at ‘The Village’ will be responsible for producing the magazine’s English section. The magazine will be distributed through a network of hotels, traditional restaurants and small rural guesthouses, so our interns’ work will contribute to making sure that Romanian traditions and customs are known to local and foreign tourists.
As a journalism intern, you will have the opportunity to visit Romanian villages at least once every two weeks in order to get to know rural Romania and report on it. You will interview mayors, teachers, craftsmen, priests and simple peasants; you will research their way of life and struggles dealing with the modern world and determine how these ancient traditions have survived in urban life.
During your time with ‘The Village,’ you will gain valuable experience in all the processes involved in putting together a commercial magazine. You will have the opportunity to learn how to research, write, proofread, edit and analyze an article. Additionally, you can help take photographs to illustrate your own writing, design the pages that will host your work, and be involved in the distribution of the magazine.
We greatly value the skills you will gain by working for ‘The Village’ and expect you to share them. In order for you to use these skills to the benefit of the local community, we have started weekly Journalism Clubs in two local primary schools. Under the supervision of our Journalism Manager, Alexandra Ichim, you will coordinate 6 to 10 children in each school to create a small monthly school newspaper. The children are selected based on their English level and writing skills, photography, drawing and computer skills. The children then take on all the roles that are involved in the creation of a publication: reporters, editors, proofreaders, photographer and designers.
This project is available for two weeks if you don't have time to join us for a month or more. This project has been selected by our local colleagues as being suitable for short term interning for both the host community and the intern. Although you will gain a valuable cultural insight and work intensely within the local community please be aware that you may not be able to make the same impact as someone interning for a longer period. The magazine is a bi-monthly publication so by joining the project for two weeks you may not be at the internship when the edition is printed.
