Be a part of the Capricious team and work first-hand with the production of magazines and books, as well as our roving curatorial projects. The internship will also involve maintaining and building relationships with bookstores and museums alike, and can include general office organization and archiving.

Applicants must have a background in art and/or photography and willingness to do entry-level intern work, while being provided with unique exposure to the inner-workings of a magazine. Ideal candidates are trustworthy recent grads with positive energy, keen organizational skills, and attention to detail.
