Please note: Due to the current pandemic, Hyperallergic’s internship program is currently on-hold until our office in Brooklyn opens up again. Please check back in the spring for updates on Fall 2021.


Our internship sessions, and their application periods, are as follows:

  • Fall 2021: September–December (application period May 1 – June 30)
  • Spring 2022: January–May (application period August 1 – September 30)
  • Summer 2022: June–August (application period February 1 – March 31)

QualificationsWe’re looking for folks who love keeping a pulse on the art world and are passionate about journalism. The most important skill we’re looking for is strong writing, so send us your best clips! A penchant for puns is a plus. Both graduate and undergraduate students, with backgrounds in art history, journalism, or related fields, are encouraged to apply.

DutiesWhile the internship will be writing-focused, interns at Hyperallergic will have the opportunity to experience a bit of everything that goes on in the office. Duties will vary from research and fact-checking on stories to assisting with Hyperallergic’s social media.

All interested candidates should be available for at least 10 sequential weeks during the session they apply for.

CompensationFrom day one, it was important to us at Hyperallergic that everyone is paid for their work, both creative and otherwise. All interns will be paid.

Interns will be expected to work from our office in Williamsburg at least two days a week.

We read every application, but due to the volume of applications we receive, we regret that we can’t respond to everyone.
