As the World Interns

In a gift seemingly more for comedy writers than  journalists, media blog reported today about a Manchester, U.K.-based periodical in the works entitled Intern.

According to the fledgling journal's Web site (, the magazine's dual purpose is to "provide a tactile showcase for the precocious talent currently working in these fields as interns or otherwise unpaid," and to launch a "frank debate about the current state of the intern culture and its potential implications in both the short and long term for the creative industries."

The Web site lists editorial contributors from the U.K, U.S. and throughout Western Europe and notes that the independent bi-monthly magazine is looking for financial support from donors and the Kickstarter Web site. 

The woefully underpaid staff of "TUOL" has the following questions for Intern: Will the magazine's circulation be paid, even if its staff isn't?, and When the magazine is published, will staffers send each other to pick up a newsstand copy and a coffee?
