Emdashes Fall Interns: We Want You!

Filed under: The Catbird Seat: Friends & Guests   Tagged: ,

The Emdashes team is looking for bright, New Yorker-phile, syntax-and-punctuation-consumed, creative, and cheerful interns for the fall season. The internship will span from mid-September through December and will be supervised by various members of the staff, all of whom have been interns and will be friendly and supportive mentors in literary-media-political-illustration-design-niche blogging.

It will involve whatever you are best at doing from this list: editing, writing, idea-generating, organizing, tagging, coding, linking, doing multimedia tasks to be determined, reporting local events (not just in New York but wherever you happen to be), reading, reviewing, collecting, scanning, sleuthing, event planning, and/or obsessing. Actually, obsessing is the only absolute requirement. Attention to detail and horror at factual, typographical, and orthographical errors are key.

Benefits include free stuff (books, tickets to events, and the like), plenty of positive reinforcement and honest advice from professional editors and writers, web publication experience, writing clips, and a ticket to the hottest party in town: the Emdashes 5th Anniversary Extravaganza, near New Year’s of this year.

Please send a short email explaining why you are the perfect Emdashes intern to emily at emdashes dot com, and attach your CV and a writing sample or two. We’re looking forward to meeting you!
