Yellow Scene Magazine distributes 70,000 magazines throughout Boulder County and the North Metro area, giving us a prominent media presence and making us one of the most accessible publications in the region. We offer a casual, creative enthusiastic work environment with high expectations, serious deadlines and opportunities to collaborate with a hard-working team of editors, designers, account representatives and one bad ass publisher. At Yellow Scene we seek to find unique individuals that feel right at home in our eclectic, hectic, and creative environment. YS provides a great environment for the creatives, the individual, we often lovingly refer to ourselves as a group of scrappy, rag tag beatniks! YS is a place to grow but expect late night deadlines-we are a monthly magazine! (We provide ample time off in exchange for those late, late nights).

Boulder County-based magazine Yellow Scene is seeking magazine journalists for it’s monthly publication, as well as its sister magazines Colorado Brides & Colorado Babies and home design-oriented Home & Hood.
Candidates will work on a freelance basis writing feature stories in the vein of Yellow Scene’s voice– a creative combination of just the right amount of sass and a whole lot of substance– and should already have published clips. Feature-length stories, which cover a range of general subjects, will be assigned at first with cash and house account compensation. Later, we can talk about pitching ideas and blueprinting story packages.
We’re looking for dogged journalists itching to tell a story creatively that engages our Boulder County readership. If you’re a thorough researcher and writer looking for elegantly designed clips in a magazine circulating 70,000 copies, we want to hear from you.
Editorial and Social Media Internships
Yellow Scene Magazine offers an internship each semester—fall, spring and summer—for students looking to get a taste of the magazine business. Interns get the opportunity to write everything from small blurbs to blogs to Facebook posts to feature-length cover stories. Internships are not paid, but perks include exposure in a magazine that distributes more than 70,000 copies a month in the North Metro area, clips and access to gift certificates to local restaurants, shops and services.
Some experience and interest in web publishing in a must, as we not only publish and distribute hard-copy magazines but also online peices which feature layout and formatting in HTML and CSS in order to maintain our quality standards regarding the look of our published material.
