ComicsVerse is a burgeoning authority on comic book & cultural analysis, avid advocates for underrated work and the go to site for all things nerdy. We cover everything in the popular culture landscape and provide content for the seasoned consumer and the newcomer alike. Our editors and writers are from a wide range of backgrounds with varied interests and strengths. We operate like a startup - Nobody wears just one hat.We are a group of inspired writers, speakers, interviewers, editors and filmmakers looking to expand.

We're looking for a talented editorial and/or writing intern with a passion for popular culture that will work with our Culture team under the Executive and Managing Editors. The ideal candidate is self-starter, a quick learner, and a lover of words and communication. We welcome all to apply.

The Culture section for which the position will join, strays from the typical content seen on the ComicsVerse site. As such, we are looking for those who love to research the shifts in cultural trends and to write about their evolution, impact, and possible connection with other movements across the globe. We have several positions open in each area: Television, Film, Music, Books, Technology, and Politics. If you love to engage the public with new information, helping people to expand their ideas and challenge dominant thought, we’d love to hear from you.
