ANIMAL Needs More (Paid) Interns

August 19, 2013 | ANIMAL

What do we do here? 

Lots of stuff. Recently, ANIMAL trolled Supreme, got love from Rachel Maddow, ruled the Vine game and reported from the front lines of #OccupyGezi. We interviewed artists, made mixtapes, documented graffiti in the UK and Egypt, looked into this Abramović thing, made a “Merry Indie Xmas” and shot the official “Rent Is Too Damn High” music video. We’re about dogs, bikes, street artistshackerstroublemakers and “rap quotes.” When historic bars close, important art exhibits open or new foods are invented, we’re there.

Our interns investigated New York’s alternative libraries, lit, “insane” artgallon smashingfamous last tweets and the New Aesthetic pizza. They made a Russian dash-cam super-cut, designed minimalist icons for subway deaths and camped out in a mini art dome in the park. You in?

ANIMAL Is Looking for an Editorial Intern Starting September!
Self-motivated, detail-oriented pros and weirdos who live in New York are wanted. No cowards. Familiarity with WordPress, Photoshop and NYC strongly preferred.

You will be working directly with our entire team, learning by doing and making contacts.
Ideal candidates are available 10ish to 6ish, four to five times a week. You may work remotely sometimes if you really need to, but mostly you’ll be working from our Hell’s Kitchen office (it’s nice) or out in the field on assignments. Maybe at the beach. 


Intern Duties Will Include…

Finding fresh/inspiring content online/offline
Writing many blog posts
Writing original stories (Journalism)
Pitching features/articles/projects/videos
Occasional transcripts, video assistance and keeping a lookout

If interested, send us a quick note about yourself, a resume, your availability and links to your work — previous journalism/blogging experience or other demonstrations of strong writing skills. Also, show us a few of your favorite blogs/news sites or articles you think are good and link to Twitter or whatever looks clever.

Email marina@animalnewyork.com with the subject “Editorial Intern Application.” Application deadline: August 31st, 2013. This is a paid internship. You do not need to be in school. Intern terms are flexible.

ANIMAL’s previous interns have moved on to work at TIME, Huffington Post and more. Our full time designer Nate Cepis and staff writer/interventionist Andy Cush started as interns. Check out our features and films page for recent projects.

We’re also looking for freelance writers.
Pitch original stories and re-occurring features to marina@animalnewyork.com too. We pay well. Don’t send crap.
