Hannah Long, ‘20, Interns for The Weekly Standard

Posted by Rachael Wilbur
Long had the opportunity to intern for The Weekly Standard, one of the foremost political magazines in the country.

The Rural Retreat, Virginia native was able to write new articles on topics of her choosing as well as a variety of other pieces.

She was able to improve as a journalist and learn the skills needed to work at a magazine in Washington D.C.

This experience forced her to find her own stories, find topics that she cared about, and learn from experienced writers. “Being around such great writers and thinkers has been a great asset, as I think writers learn a lot from imitation.”  

After graduating Long hopes to work in Washington and continue using her journalism skills.
