DescriptionWhat is The Wish Dish?
TheWishDish.com is the Ted Talks for personal stories. Imagine if Twitter and Thought Catalog had a baby. We provide people a platform for people to connect with others through authentic self-expression.
We live in a world where people use social media outlets allowing them to display a false reality of who they really are. We create these superficial perceptions and feel we have to keep up with others constantly comparing our lives to how great someone else’s life seems to be.
Wish Dish represents everything underneath. We seek to reveal what we really think without the worry of feeling hurt or ridiculed. We provide a safe place for authentic expression where people can share their fears, vulnerabilities and struggles.
We are an Athens, GA based startup, but this internship is entirely online and can be performed from anywhere.
What will you do?
You will work with our editor team to produce (at least) one written or visual submission for our site per month. These pieces can be fiction or nonfiction. They can be in the form of articles, videos, photographs, music, art, or whatever else you would like. The only requirement is that the piece be meaningful to you and help influence others, however that may be. No limits, no boundaries, it’s your story, so make it you.
We accept applications on a rolling basis. We are looking for staff writers who will contribute to our site for as long as they desire, but we ask that you commit AT LEAST 3 months.
What are we looking for?
We are looking for anyone with a strong voice or perspective that they hope to share with others. We need interns who are willing to express themselves and be vulnerable in whatever form they choose to do so. We also ask that contributors commit at least 3 months.

-Entirely online and can be performed anywhere/anytime
-Will get to work with a dedicated team of writers/entrepreneurs who want to help you succeed (will happily write recommendations!)
