American Chordata is seeking an Spring 2017 Outreach Intern to help us get the word out about our magazine to potential readers, stockists, and subscribers. This is a part-time, remote position; if you are in the New York City area you’re welcome to attend AC meetings in person (otherwise, we are happy to Skype you in). The internship will begin in late February/early March and will end in early June 2017, when we will publish Issue Five of American Chordata. Our ideal candidate is passionate about literature and the arts, writes clearly, and is a self-starter who can prioritize and balance tasks in an entrepreneurial environment. If you’re an American Chordata super-fan, that’s a big plus.
The fine print: this is a volunteer-basis internship with American Chordata Foundation, Inc., a nonprofit educational institution whose primary mission is to promote the development of creative individuals as writers and artists and fostering public appreciation of excellence in the literary and graphic arts by publishing, owning, operating, and maintaining a magazine containing fiction, poetry, essays, artworks, and photography. Because we’re an unfunded nonprofit, we regretfully are unable to offer compensation or benefits for the internship. The internship will offer meaningful experience to someone looking to break into the publishing industry.
To apply, please submit a cover letter and resume by March 1 to Justin Cahill, Nonfiction Editor, via [email protected]
