Going to a game? Snap some pictures and send them to Stiletto Sports! We’ll publish a personal photo essay of your experience with full credit and links back to your own website. No website? Um. Send them anyway as a generous donation to the Beautification of the Stiletto Sports Foundation. No, that is not tax-deductible. But it will make us look pretty!

INTERNSHIPS

We are looking for highly motivated individuals that have the ability to juggle several assignments at once. We love  creative students, wanting to gain exposure to a magazine setting and learn more about the business.

We expect our interns to hit the ground running in their stilettos (or sneakers, we are equal opportunity shoe careerists….) We prefer candidates who are working towards a degree in journalism, English or communications. But we recognize that most great writers and editors run screaming from that kind of stuff accounting majors, feel free to apply too.

Students who are active with campus publications should definitely apply….you know, in all your free time…. On second thought, nevermind. We know how sleep deprived you are.

We have four sports-seasonal internships:  Baseball (Feb-Oct), Football (Aug-Feb), NBA Basketball (Oct-June), NCAA Basketball (Oct-April). Shorter seasonal internships can be negotiated.

The unpaid position requires a commitment of 10-20 hours per week and is entirely tele-commute. Unless you live in the Tampa Bay area or have the overwhelming desire to move to Southwest Florida in which case you may come chill work diligently in the office. (Note: relocation is not paid for!)

EDITORIAL INTERNSHIPS

  • Fact-checking written material
  • Assisting editors with story research
  • Reporting and contributing articles on a semi-frequent basis (Hint: if you are good, this could lead to a Featured Column on the website or in the magazine)

  • Be detail-oriented & responsible.
  • Curious with an insatiable thirst for knowledgeable (in other words if you shun Wikipedia, this is not for you!)
  • Be familiar and skilled in AP Stylebook and the Elements of Style
