Intern magazine has two main aims. The first is to provide a tactile showcase for the precocious talent currently working in the creative industries as interns or unpaid. Secondly, it initiates 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 all concerned.
The intention is to empower interns through both facets of the publication. Drawing industry attention to the work of those it features and existing as a useful resource to those currently involved in or on the precipice of internships are the magazine’s means of doing so. In order to be effective on any level, intern needs to be accessible and this is reflected in the mix of features it presents, ranging from serious debate to casual observation.
While the creative industries are the focal point of the publication, this is not to suggest that unpaid internships are somehow endemic to them. Far from it. These industries are a fascinating case study and a starting point for the debate. If you are curious about the creative industries or enjoy independent magazines, intern offers an insight into these worlds that is seldom presented.
