Editorial Communications Internship


Lincoln Center Communications Department

The Communications Department is responsible for defining, developing, and overseeing the overall messaging and media strategy for LCPA’s performances, events and programs, and institutional initiatives. Comprised of three areas—public relations, social media, and original editorial content—Communications operates within the External Relations Department and collaborates closely with senior staff, as well as the marketing and digital teams.


Within the Communications Department, Lincoln Center’s Editorial Team oversees the creation and publication of original content for our online magazine The Score, as well as several other print pieces and series. The Editorial Communications Intern will work with the other members of the Editorial team to collate, proofread, fact check, copy edit, and format original content for the website as well as other print publications as needed. The Intern will also work with the PR and social teams to staff events during the summer across classical programming, contemporary programming, and education initiatives. The Intern will have the opportunity to participate in brainstorming sessions and other weekly meetings and occasional outings with the full Communications Department, splitting duties approximately 50/50 between the editorial and press/social units.

Graduate or undergraduate students may apply. Literature, Journalism, or Second Language majors preferred. Experience editing html and/or working with various Content Management Systems strongly desired. Attention to detail is a must.
