“My internship at the Daily was an invaluable and unforgettable experience. Only in retrospect did I realize how lucky I was to work as a staff reporter — never mind ‘intern’ — on a paper that challenged me in such a unique way, while allowing me to interview and write about some of the brightest minds in the world.”

Drew Johnson
Editor for online trade magazine
2009 Chautauquan Daily reporter

“The internship at Chautauqua was valuable because of the opportunity and openness that was encouraged and expected in sharing one’s work. Sharing ideas with other designers, photographers, writers and editors is something that has proven invaluable at my job.”

Sam Twarek
Associate art director, Cleveland Magazine
2010 Chautauquan Daily design editor

“I was interested in pursuing an arts-related journalistic career after college. My time at The Chautauquan Daily gave me valuable experience with a wide range of arts coverage and reinforced the direction I wanted to take with work. … It gave me the confidence and experience necessary to successfully find work in the fields of dance, theater and fine arts marketing.”

Carly McCloskey
Marketing coordinator, The Metropolitan Museum of Art
2007 Chautauquan Daily copy editor

“Working in a fast-paced, diverse and professional newsroom, the way the Daily is run, prepared me for the real world. Instead of fact-checking or running errands, we were doing hands-on reporting, day in and day out, just as I do now.”

Beth Ann Downey
Deputy editor, JUMP Philly
2010 Chautauquan Daily reporter

“Designing for the Daily pushed my skill set to the limit, though any pressure I ever felt was self-imposed — the work environment was nothing short of idyllic, and it was a joy to collaborate with individuals on staff.”

Lindsey Burrows
Assistant editor, The American Interest magazine
