Entertainment Weekly is looking for editorial interns — Los Angeles, summer 2019
Do you stay up late waiting for Game of Thrones recaps to go online? Did you spend hours obsessing over all the references in “Thank U, Next?” Are you still completely obsessed with Harry Potter? We’re all entertainment geeks here at EW, and we’re looking for recent graduates who are as passionate about pop culture as we are. We need you to be well-versed in at least one of the areas we cover (TV, movies, music, and books).
Daily responsibilities include writing news posts for the website, fact-checking entire back-of-book sections of the magazine, and some typical entry-level tasks, such as opening mail, transcribing interviews, and monitoring online feedback. A motivated intern will also have the opportunity to write TV recaps, report stories for the magazine, cover red carpets, attend movie screenings, and more.
This isn’t an internship for someone who thinks they might be interested in entertainment journalism; it’s an internship for someone who lives and breathes pop culture. The ideal candidate will have impeccable research, reporting, and writing skills, and will already have completed at least one internship.
WHEN: 2-3 months, beginning June 1, 2019; 40 hours/week, including some night and weekend hours, at $13.25/hour.
WHERE: Los Angeles
HOW TO APPLY: Please send a résumé, cover letter, and 2-3 previously published clips to carolyn.cutrone
