Be A Hilltromper Intern!

Hey you, nature-lovin' writer! Hilltromper is looking for interns for the winter and spring. If you like playing in the outdoors, care about conservation and get a big shivery thrill out of writing accurately and well, we want to hear from you. We're two seasoned alt-weekly editors who can help you hone your journalistic and marketing skills while you bring your fierce intelligence and dazzling wit to the Hilltromper enterprise.

We ask for a commitment of 15 hours per week for 4 months. In exchange you'll learn and practice basic journalistic skills, interview fascinating people, help manage a vibrant events calendar, learn some principles of social media for business and become skilled at working with a content management system. Your resume will thank you, and you'll probably have fun. Who knows? We might even be your future favorite former bosses.

Our office is in Santa Cruz, but we can work something out for the right candidate in the Valley. Let's talk! You'll find us at
