Gawker Media’s Valleywag is seeking an intern:
The info streaming through Valleywag is getting overwhelming. To keep this gossip machine churning, I need an intern.
The job consists of:
Writing an occasional brief post. Intern must be witty and a quick writer.
Handling some correspondence with readers. Giving people comment invites and such.
Writing on assignment. This part will pay money if you’re good. Possible stories include celeb-spotting — reporting which venture capitalists are eating at Buck’s, for example — and party/event reports.
There’s no Valleywag office to report to, unless you count Starbucks.
To apply, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Intern”. Include a brief relevant bio, and link to any blog or clippings you have so I can check out your style.
