Production Fellowship

Outside offers a paid, six-month production fellowship on our digital team at our offices in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Production fellows work closely with our editors and art team to present all online content in a clean, timely way.

We are currently hiring a production fellow to start in March 2020. Applications are due on February 21, 2020.

The role’s main responsibilities include:

  • Tackling both daily and long-term production needs for the brand
  • Working closely with the production manager to build stories and packages in the CMS
  • Assisting with photo research
  • Helping with the overall display and presentation of stories

In addition to the above primary responsibilities, fellows with an interest in art direction have the opportunity to work with and sit in on meetings with the art team; fellows with an interest in reporting have the opportunity to sit in on editorial story meetings and write and fact check articles for the website.

Applicants should: 

  • Have experience navigating a content management system (we use Drupal)
  • Be proficient in Adobe Photoshop
  • Have an eye for copy editing and headline writing 
  • Have some college or post-college professional experience working at a newspaper, magazine, or website

Previous experience as a producer is a plus, but if you’re motivated, detail-oriented, a fast learner, and interested in the editorial processes of a national magazine, we encourage you to apply. 

Telecommuting is not an option and Outside is unable to provide work visas for those applying from outside of the United States.

To apply, please send a cover letter, résumé, and three work samples (articles, photographs, audio pieces, a project you were involved in producing, etc.) to Luke Whelan at fellowships@outsideim.com with the subject line “Production fellowship application.” No phone calls, please.

Editorial Fellowship

Outside offers a paid, six-month editorial fellowship at our offices in Santa Fe, New Mexico. We will next be considering applications in Spring 2020 for the fellowship cycle starting in June 2020. 

As an editorial fellow, you will work closely with top editors and reporters at an award-winning magazine on everything from quick-turnaround stories to longform features. Your duties will predominantly comprise fact-checking and other research tasks, but fellows also have the opportunity to write for the magazine and website.

An ideal candidate is passionate about the outdoors, knows the magazine well, and has some post-college professional experience working at a newspaper, magazine, or website. Outside is unable to provide work visas for those applying from outside of the United States. We also are rarely able to consider applicants who are still in college or just graduated.

Please send a cover letter, résumé, and three relevant writing samples to research editor Luke Whelan at fellowships@outsideim.com.
