Intern Magazine is a new, bi-annual independent print publication concerned with internships in the creative industries. The magazine has two main aims. The first is to provide a tactile showcase for the precocious talent currently working in these fields unpaid and as interns. Secondly, we are initiating a long overdue and frank debate about the current state of the intern culture, and its potential implications in both the short and long term for the creative industries. The intention is to empower interns through both facets of the publication. Drawing industry attention to the work of those we feature and existing as a useful resource to those currently involved in or on the precipice of internships are our means of doing so. If you are at all compelled by the culture of unpaid work then you will find something of interest in our pages.
