Editorial Internship

The Paris Review offers paid editorial internships twice a year (two interns per term). The internship requires a full-time commitment for six months, affording interns the opportunity to participate in two full production cycles. Interns assist with every step of production, from fact-checking to proofreading to distributing issues. They are also tasked with a variety of administrative, digital, and developmental work. Interns work a thirty-five-hour week at minimum wage. We do not sponsor visas.

Paris Review internships are an excellent introduction to the literary world. Past graduates have gone on to find work at a wide range of literary agencies, publishing houses, magazines, and newspapers, among them HarperCollins, Farrar, Straus and Giroux, Simon and Schuster, the Gernert Agency, the Wylie Agency, Poets & WritersThe New Yorker, Vanity Fair, and the Wall Street Journal. Others have gone on to enjoy successful freelance careers as editors and writers.
