Narratively is Hiring an Editorial Intern!

Narratively is a digital publication that prides itself on looking beyond the news headlines and clickbait, focusing instead on ordinary people with extraordinary stories. Our network of over 2,000 talented storytellers have experience at the most celebrated publications on earth and they come to Narratively with the passion projects they care about most—having combed our world’s big cities and hidden corners for the characters and narratives that mainstream media aren’t finding—the underdogs and overlooked tales that enlighten us, connect us, and capture our imagination. Each Narratively piece is presented in the most appropriate medium, from longform and shortform writing to short documentary films, photo essays, audio, and comics.

We’re looking for an intern who’s passionate about storytelling and digital journalism, who’s excited to learn and participate in every aspect of the editorial process, from reading submissions to promoting the finished product. Interns will also have the opportunity to pitch and write a story for us.

The position will require one day per week (usually Wednesdays) in our office in Dumbo, Brooklyn, and the ability to work remotely for the equivalent of one additional day (this remote work can be done all on one day, or spread out throughout the week to fit your schedule).

Responsibilities include:

-Reading and reviewing submissions and pitches through Submittable

-Participating in weekly pitch meetings where we discuss stories to assign

-Fact-checking

-Laying out stories in WordPress

-Promoting stories through our social media channels

To apply, send your resume to lilly@narrative.ly with a brief email telling us a bit about yourself, your interest in storytelling and journalism in general, and in Narratively specifically.
