Seeking Interns who are passionate about Fashion and Style for the Summer Season of 2014 on the Beautiful island of Martha’s Vineyard.

Dressed MV is a monthly, glossy fashion magazine pertaining to beauty and fashion on the island of Martha's Vineyard. This fashion magazine is dedicated to bringing the reader what you need to get "Dressed" on MV. The magazine features beauty products, hair styles, clothing, handbags, shoes and accessories from stores all over the island. We are currently working on a web page but here is the link for our FB page at this time: https://www.facebook.com/DressedMv

All of our internships are part time(up to 15 hours/week) and unpaid.  However you will have plenty of time to gain paying employment at any of the many restaurants/boutiques on the island.

Dressed MV is a monthly fashion magazine that will be published 6 times/Summer-Fall season. We introduce fashion in the way of products- hair, make-up and styling, beauty- nail color, hair styles, make-up styles as well as what's trending on the island for clothing, shoes and accessories for men and women! Dressed MV is geared toward tourists(many of them from Boston, NYC and other influential cities and countries) visiting this beautiful little island as well as the locals.

This will be the first year using interns but rest assured that this is NOT an internship where you will be stuffing envelopes and performing other menial tasks. Your articles and work WILL be published each month as well as read by over ten thousand people monthly!

In addition, at least once during your internship, you will preform as the Assistant Editor position where you will work closely with the Publisher, Graphic Designer, Editor and other interns to help produce an issue. This will prove to be very useful as you will have hard copies of the issues to take with you to show future employers/schools. Also, we are happy to meet the requirements your school may have to earn school credits.

This is an unpaid internship, however interns have the opportunity to obtain other full time work in restaurants or boutiques/stores on the island. (Dressed MV is more than willing to help you seek other employment as we have a wonderful relationship with most of the island's most fashionable boutiques and restaurants). We will work with you as much as possible to accommodate your schedule, if possible. 

We hope that as an intern for Dressed MV you will gain some very valuable experience and take it to new levels as you forge on with your careers either in journalism or the fashion industry.

I hope this gives you an understanding of our internship program. We are also seeking candidates who have one or more of the following skills or would like to have a first hand experience in one or more of the following: writing, photography, seeking out new products, assisting styling of editorial shoots

- Writing- more specifically writing blurbs for said and featured products as well as a feature article or two
- Possibly some photography of products. I have professional photographers that will shoot the editorals for each issue.
- Help with styling/make-up/hair/putting together looks for each issues editorial section
- Seeking out Trends in regards to finding fabulous products, accessories and clothes that are not only relatable to the incoming visitors but are revered as being somewhat elite, cool and downright beautiful- eye catching!

Please be specific in the area you are most proficient in and let us know if you have had any experience working with a high school/college newspaper. Please send a cover letter, resume, and a recent writing sample(s)/ designs to:dressedmv@gmail.com along with any further questions concerning the position. Please put ‘M.V. Summer Intern 2014’ in the subject title of your email.

Thank you,
