Paid writing internships @ NYC dating and pop culture website
We are an award-winning website producing original content covering the lives and interests of culturally obsessed men and women in their 20s and 30s. Nerve celebrates the sexiness and challenges of being young and single with its true stories, smart pop culture coverage, blogs, and advice. We're a home for 1.5 million monthly readers where lively, strong and opinionated voices bring readers to the front lines of their current entertainment obsessions and social lives in an uncensored way.
So if you're smart, thrive on pop culture, love to be in the scene, and have the talent to match, then we want you in our Soho loft. Two or three days a week is what we're asking for. You'll spend your days pitching and writing for Nerve, being a key driver of the editorial process and doing other sundry tasks for the office.
Unlike many internships, Nerve prides itself of having an actively managed program where our interns make important contributions to our site. We look for rising stars who want hands-on experience pitching ideas, following trends, supporting the needs of editors and management, and learning the ins and outs of online publishing. Innovative thinkers who can demonstrate fresh content ideas move to the front of the line.
Pay is between $200-$300 month, depending on how many days per week you work. More importantly, this is a chance to have fun doing something you love. Sound great? Then tell us about yourself with:
- A resume
- A short blurb on who you are and why Nerve would be a great fit. We want to get a sense of your voice, so you can skip the "Dear Sir or Madam."
- A few ideas for pieces you think could run on Nerve
- A writing sample. Please no academic writing, college papers, poems, short stories, erotica, or links to stuff you wrote on your blog. We want smart, conversational writing that demonstrates your pop culture sensibilities and voice. Try to supply a piece of writing you could imagine running on the site.
Send your stuff to firstname.lastname@example.org with 'Editorial Intern" (and only that) in the subject line by Tuesday, January 3rd.
