<i>Paste</i> Internships: How to Apply

Paste Magazine offers remote internships in our editorial departments. Internships are part-time and offered year-round to both current students and recent graduates. A one-time $800 stipend will be provided to all interns at the completion of their internship.

Editorial Interns are primarily responsible for assisting Paste’s staff with the day-to-day tasks of running the website. These include writing news, pitching features and collaborating on lists, as well as occasional administrative tasks or help with social media accounts. Basic HTML skills are a plus but not required. Please include any specific sections you are interested in applying for in your cover letter (Music, Movies, TV, Games, Comedy).

All interns work closely with members of their respective departments and are encouraged to participate in creative collaboration with members of the staff via email, Slack and weekly video calls throughout their time at Paste.

How to Apply

Applications for internships are taken on a rolling basis. Spring internships run January through May. Summer internships run May through August. Fall internships run August through December.
