Love gaming? We’re looking for a new writer to join Clocked!

Want to work alongside Happy Mag’s team? We’re looking for new faces to join our dedicated gaming channel, Clocked.

In March 2020, we launched Clocked, an official gaming channel by Happy Mag. We’re ready to expand that team and are looking for an intern to help take Clocked to the next level.

We are looking for an intern to join our team of contributors for one day per week. So if you’re gifted with a pen (or keyboard) and always plugged in, and have a passion for games and gaming culture, then we’d love to hear from you!
