Intern #2: I did copy-editing, proof-reading, reporting and writing. I'm pursued a story of my own on independent music in India...I got great reporting experience, and I learned about how a print publication functions. Intern #3: Copyedited, researched potential story ideas, conducted interviews, accompanied senior reporters in their interviews, attended editorial and pitch meetings, etc. I learned how to pitch a story and how to do the pre-reporting that comes along with a pitch. I also learned about the magazine production process and how all the different departments come together to make a magazine work.
