Fashion, Beauty and Pop Culture Editorial Internship at Lovelyish.com (New York)

Lovelyish.com is a blog dedicated to covering fashion, beauty, pop culture and other women-oriented topics in an approachable, intelligent voice. We stress the value of community and forward progression. Our site totals about 2 million pageviews per month.

This internship provides an excellent opportunity to develop a real prowess within the broad scope of new media.

* Prior writing/blogging experience (must enjoy blogging!)
* Must have excellent communication skills and be highly organized, efficient
* Work a minimum of 15 hours/week
* Minimum commitment of 4 months (one full-length semester)
* Basic knowledge of HTML
* All majors welcome (journalism preferred, though), can be for school credit
* Can work remotely from home or school mostly but must be able to work from our Midtown West office in Manhattan at least once a week

Our ideal candidate is a voracious news consumer. We look for someone who navigates through a variety of social media platforms and news outlets with ease, accumulating a steady stream of story ideas along the way. We would like to find a self-starter with a basic grasp of AP Style, HTML and a thirst to push the envelope journalistically. We dig strong voices and large vocabularies, too. Above all else, we want interns who are passionate about the topics we cover.

This is an unpaid internship; however it can lead to a paid position. Interns will receive training, mentorship and opportunities to expand their portfolios. We want to lend a hand to a new generation of bloggers and help you walk away from your internship with a better handle on reporting, interviewing and writing in general.

Our office is always stocked with free snacks and beverages. Based on job performance, references and networking opportunities will be provided. We aim to promote growth and take a very grassroots, team-centric approach with our esteemed group of interns.

Application Process:
* Please email us at internships@xanga.net (tell us why you want this internship, your qualifications and strengths, and why it's a good fit for you)
* Attach a resume and URL to your blog or at least 3 writing samples (applications with no writing samples will not be considered)
* Indicate when you're available to start and hours of availability
* Deadlines: Winter/spring internship (late-November to the end of March): Nov. 12
Spring internship (early January to the end of April): Nov. 21

Thanks for your interest and good luck!
