An internship at off our backs can be a radicalizing experience. An opportunity to spend a summer or a semester in the U.S. capital city. Writing, graphics, web design: you choose your area of focus. Send your resume and a writing sample to off our backs 2337B 18th Street, NW
Washington, DC 20009
Money: The internship is unpaid. (We know that really sucks and we wish we could pay interns, but as of right now we honestly don’t have the funds!) Fortunately, DC is a great place to intern and there are mucho resources for student interns living in the city.
Housing: Because there so many people intern in DC there are lots of opportunities to sub-let people’s places or find group housing. A good resource is www.washingtoncitypaper.com. You can check out their classifieds, which are updated every Tues. @ 3:00PM. Just a mild warning: DC housing is quite expensive, so group housing situations or hostels are often ideal financially.
Transportation: Easy, wonderful, efficient…you can get just about anywhere without a car. We are located in the part of Washington called Adams Morgan, which is accessible via walking, biking, and bus, and there is a metro stop not too far away.

Interns are encouraged to attend our collective meetings (Tuesday evenings) to get an understanding of how collective feminist stuff works. We also encourage you to spend a Saturday or two with us to work on layout and production. oob is informal and flexible and a fun place to work, but there is a lot of work to do that must be done to professional standards.
As you are making your decision about interning, it will be helpful to check out one or more copies of our publication. You can find oob at many university libraries, public libraries and feminist bookstores.
