Corporate Office - 57 W. South Temple, Salt Lake City, UT 84101

Position Description

Do you want to work on meaningful projects that make a positive impact in the lives of others? Are you looking for actual front-line experience that will make your resume stand out from all the rest? Are you passionate about writing and editing? If you answered yes to the questions above, then you should apply to become our next editorial intern.

And if an hourly wage, school credit, unlimited soda on tap, and a downtown office overlooking Temple Square aren't enough to get you excited to come to work every day, consider this: joining our editorial team is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to help build something that is a force for good in the world.

As our intern, you will be responsible for writing and editing content for LDS Living magazine and LDSLiving.com. Everyday tasks will include writing, editing, interviewing, fact checking, content planning, and much more.

We're looking for someone with fresh ideas and a positive attitude. We're a small team working on some big projects, and we need someone who can jump in and do great things.

Company Description

LDS Living magazine, a division of Deseret Book, is a bi-monthly magazine and daily online blog that aims to inform, entertain, and inspire. We address issues that are relevant to Mormons and celebrate our unique culture. We complement, rather than focus on, spiritual issues and strive to support the lifestyle and beliefs of our readers.

Required Skills

Applicants should be currently enrolled and working toward a degree in a related field or recently graduated. We welcome communications majors with an emphasis in journalism, English majors who have taken a copy-editing class, or those who have had substantial experience planning and running a successful blog. Knowledge of Chicago or AP styles is a plus. Must have excellent writing and communications skills and an interest in learning all facets of online content generation and the magazine publication process.

Additional Information

This is a paid internship opportunity ($10/hr) that requires approximately 40 hours per week during regular business hours for 15 weeks, starting on January 7, 2019 and ending on April 19, 2019. 

Application Instructions

If you'd like to apply for this position, please complete a Workday application from our website and send a cover letter, resume, and two blog- or article-based writing samples to Andrea Barker at abarker@deseretbook.com. Applications without writing samples will NOT be considered.


Merchandise discount, great work environment, and an excellent internship experience. Academic credit is available as arranged by the student through their college or university.
