Editorial Intern
(Los Angeles, California)

FLOOD is looking for editorial interns who are passionate about music, film, television, food/drink, technology, fashion, video games, sports, literature, and just about anything else under the sun. Interns will work side by side with FLOOD editors on a daily basis with responsibilities that include researching and writing for the website, transcribing interviews, assisting at FLOOD events, and copy-editing reviews and features, in addition to various office duties.

The internship runs in three cycles per year: Winter/Spring (January–May), Summer (June–August), and Fall/Holiday (September–December), however the dates are flexible as to best accommodate a variety of school schedules. FLOOD does not provide travel or housing assistance for internships. Interns must be able to receive academic credit for completing this internship. Note: this is an unpaid position.

Job Requirements

– Currently pursuing a college degree in journalism, writing, English, or any other related field
