Internship + Volunteer Positions

Our editors work with aspiring writers, photographers, videographers, and audio storytellers to guide them through a process that culminates in the creation of high-quality creative works.

The editorial department of Outdoor Women’s Alliance works primarily in the Editorial Mentorship Program to help fulfill the “building skills” portion of OWA’s mission.  Through this program, we help women who are looking to build a resume in adventure journalism—covering non-fiction adventure writing, photography, videography, film, and/or podcasting—hone their skills by working in a mentorship capacity with our editorial team. In addition to being the key players in our Editorial Mentorship Program, our editorial team also helps shape the content on our site, looking for ways to increase value to visitors through partnered content, SEO strategy, and refining the visuals and verbiage with regular content updates.
