Editorial interns work closely with our creative and dynamic full-time editorial team. Interns become an integral part of the YourTango team, learning the ins and outs of the online publishing business, working one-on-one with editors to pitch ideas and writing quality articles for publication. 

This internship is fully remote.

Typical Intern Tasks:

  • Pitching headline and article ideas daily.
  • Participate in daily pitch meetings (should be prepared to pitch ideas in every meeting)
  • Writing a minimum of 8 articles per week.
  • Periodically editing article submissions from other writers.
  • Building articles within our content management system (we provide full training)
  • Finding images, memes for header photos, and in-body content.
  • Using current Search engine optimization (SEO) techniques on every article (we provide training).
  • Periodically working with editorial content from our partner sites, assisting editors with various projects, training in areas to expand skill set, etc.
  • Working across multiple departments to help with projects, including (but not limited to) pulling weekly/monthly article analytics, PR outreach, social media scheduling, refurbishing archive content, etc.


  • Access to your own computer and reliable internet connection.
  • Ability to communicate consistently throughout your scheduled shifts with our team in real-time via Slack and email for chatting, voice calls, video calls, conference calls, and screen-sharing.
  • Ability to work a SET weekly schedule between the days of Monday and Friday. (Schedule approved at the beginning of the internship).
  • Available to work 20-25 hrs per week between 7:00 AM - 9:00 PM ET for 4 months. Last day of internship will be calculated 4 months after the start date. NOTE: Like in a regular in-office setting, when you're online during your shift, you'll be interacting via Slack and available at a moment's notice during your scheduled times, actively working throughout the day - so please make sure that you are able to be fully available during the 20-25 hour schedule you decide on before accepting the internship.

Learning Objectives, Supervision & Feedback:

  • Interns are placed to work under an experienced editor who will supervise them and provide regular feedback throughout the entirety of the internship. Supervisors (professionals with expertise and educational background in the publishing field) will provide routine feedback through the internship, and - if required by the school - can complete mid-semester or end-of-semester evaluations of the intern (must be requested by the school at the beginning of the internship period).
  • Interns will acquire a variety of real-world skills they can take into their future careers. Some of these learned skills include strong writing and editing skills, interpersonal communication skills in a professional remote/virtual setting, making strict deadlines, researching, and investigative journalism skills.
  • Interns will be working one-on-one with a seasoned editor to pitch and write articles for publication (with bylines) that can be included in their portfolio, and interns will be able to network with the rest of the team (and various departments) throughout their time with YourTango. The published articles' traffic is tracked on a weekly and monthly basis by the interns' supervising editor to be used (in conjunction with a variety of other metrics) to evaluate the intern's performance.

Eligibility, Pay & Stipend:

  • Intern must be located within the continental U.S. throughout the duration of the internship. 
  • A $1500 stipend to be paid upon completion of the 4-month internship via invoice, paper check/EBT. Hourly pay is not available for this internship.
