dc.description.abstractIt was my desire to be an activist, paired with my love for writing, and interest in magazine journalism that led me to apply for an internship in the alternative press to fulfill my Kalamazoo College graduation requirement of a Senior Individualized Project. I submitted resumes, cover letters, and writing clips to two publications, The Nation and Ms. Both are New York City based, "progressive" publications that separate themselves from popular media. While both magazines are circulated nationally and comment on political, social, and cultural issues of the day, their readership is small compared to mainstream magazines like Newsweek or Vanity Fair. The Nation and Ms. cater to highly educated, liberal subscribers who turn to the magazines for their editorial slant. The reports in both publications routinely challenge conventional ideas and question the veracity of information provided by the mass media, such as television and newspapers.en_US
