Work for Autostraddle: Where Your Burning Passion is Our Free Labor

Do you ever wonder what goes on behind the smoke and mirrors here at Autostraddle?  Are you jealous of our legendary reply-all email threads? Do you want to have your work shredded into pieces and your pride crushed by our editor-in-chief? Do you have a lot of feelings about the future that you need to channel toward something revolutionary?

These are all internship positions — we’ll be posting a call for Team positions later this week.
