ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY EDITORIAL INTERNSHIP—LOS ANGELES

Do you stay up late waiting for recaps of Game of Thrones or The 100 or The Mindy Project to go online?

Do you love taking a deep dive into weekend box-office figures? Are you still completely obsessed with Harry Potter? We’re all entertainment geeks here at EW, and we’re looking for recent graduates who are passionate about pop culture and well-versed in at least one of the areas we cover (TV, movies, music, and books). 

Daily responsibilities include some usual entry-level tasks, such as transcribing interviews, assisting with research projects, and maintaining our databases, but a motivated intern can dispatch those in short order and move on to more exciting tasks: writing blog posts and TV recaps, reporting stories, covering red carpets, attending movie screenings, and so on. 

Interns are expected to pitch, not just to the ew.com editors but to print editors as well. The ideal candidate lives and breathes pop culture; is self-motivated; will have impeccable research, reporting, and writing skills; and will already have completed at least one internship.

WHEN: (March 2017 to August 2017); 40 hours/week at $10.50/hour

WHO: Recent graduates interested in a career in entertainment journalism

HOW TO APPLY: Please send a resume, cover letter, and 3-5 previously published clips to Molly.Smith@ew.com and Noelene.Clark@ew.com.

It was all well and good to see Jon Snow resurrected this season, but I never doubted that would happen to begin with.

But watching Sansa ride into the courtyard of Castle Black, and seeing the look on Jon’s face when he sees his sister once again, after years apart, was a moment of true joy. The Starks have been scattered. Ned, Catelyn, and Robb are dead. Arya has disappeared. And Rickon, alas, is in Ramsay Bolton’s dungeon.

Yet here, finally, two of the Starks are reunited, and not a moment too soon. Jon Snow has all but given up his will to fight, but Sansa is all steel and determination. She wants to fight. She wants to take back what belongs to them, and free the North from the Boltons. She wants to go home, and dammit all I agree with her.

Game of Snobbery 05x10: A Book Reader’s Recap

For GoT Season 5, Episode 10 “Mother’s Mercy

Things were not going Satannis’s way at all. Turns out burning your kid alive is NOT supes popular with the sellsword vote, so they took all their unbutchered horses (save one) and ran. I mean it’s not as if a logical person vying for the throne in a feudal system would have like, eaten those horses and tried to wait out the storm for a few days before burning up his only heir, right? But good thing no one bothered to wake Satannis as they deserted to let him know, because he wouldn’t care about that. Or like his wife finally succumbing to the fatal flaw of having a womb. At which point Meli-sans-bra decided that Femme de Satannis was her final straw and ditched the camp on a horse that makes Shadowfax seem like slow potatoes.

IT’S ALMOST LIKE SHIREEN’S DEATH DIDN’T DO ANYTHING AT ALL other than like, melt a few snow drifts. There’s no one counting on those for survival, right?

Anyway, Satannis decided to continue on because plot necessity, but oh no! Ramsay Sue and his 20 Good Men multiplied into an army of 1500! Literally, how? And just when you thought at least there will be good battle action…

Game of Snobbery 05x08: A Book Reader’s Recap

For Game of Thrones Season 5 Episode 8: “Hardhome

Have you ever thought to yourself: “you know what would be a really cool fanfic? If I just took this one popular character and plunked him down into this other popular character’s plotline, but all the same events have to unfold.” No? Well that’s crazy sauce because St. Tyrion and Deadpan Now-We-Finally-Know-Why-She’s-Called Stormborn were just that dynamic duo you couldn’t get enough of! That will-they-won’t-they err…be friends(?) was palpable. And I mean even Deadpan couldn’t contain her excitement:

I feel ya, girl. In the end, they decided on…nothing? Other than that Deadpan wants to break the wheel her family actually established because she’s in this whole ruling biz for the children! No sense of entitlement whatsoever. And St. Tyrion proved himself to be the gift that keeps on giving (just don’t ask him about the Martells apparently). All this only came at the cost of one noble knight.

Speaking of noble knights, our other Good Guy™ was turned down by the love of his life. But he was still so determined to bring the plague into her city that he’s going to fight in the pits she didn’t want to open! Good plan!

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY:

SUMMER 2016 EDITORIAL INTERNSHIP

Do you stay up late waiting for recaps of Game of Thrones or The 100 or The Mindy Project to go online? Do you love taking a deep dive into weekend box-office figures? Are you still, in your 20s, completely obsessed with Harry Potter? We’re all entertainment geeks here at EW, so as you might imagine, we’re looking for recent graduates who are passionate about pop culture and well-versed in at least two of the areas we cover (books, music, movies, TV). Daily responsibilities do include some usual entry-level tasks, such as opening mail and maintaining our databases, but a motivated intern can dispatch those in short order and move on to more exciting tasks: writing blog posts and TV recaps, reporting stories, learning our rigorous fact-checking procedures, attending movie screenings, and so on. Interns are completely integrated into daily life at EW—they attend our daily morning editorial meeting and are free to attend the section meetings (TV, movies etc.) if they would like. They are expected to pitch stories for dotcom, the print magazine, and other EW platforms; it’s rare that an intern leaves without a fistful of bylined pieces in the magazine.

This isn’t an internship for someone who thinks they might be interested in entertainment journalism; it’s an internship for someone who lives and breathes pop culture. The ideal candidate will have impeccable research, reporting, and writing skills and will already have completed at least one magazine internship.

Think that’s you? Get application details after the jump!
