Creative Nonfiction’s general internship offers outstanding undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate individuals the opportunity to learn new skills while providing experience working in the realm of literary publishing. Because our office is small, interns often can become involved with various projects and gain an understanding of all aspects of running an independent literary organization. Please note: THIS IS NOT A REMOTE POSITION.
Typical tasks include managing incoming submissions, corresponding with writers and subscribers, filling customer orders, basic office tasks, fact-checking and research, data management, and a variety of other tasks that vary depending on current CNF projects. Please note: Much of the work performed by our interns and volunteers is not glamorous, but is vital.
We value quality of work over quickness, but interns and volunteers should have the ability to multitask, work between multiple projects, and change directions often. Applicants should display strong research skills, an attention to detail, a willingness to learn, and creativity.
We offer one or two unpaid internships during the fall semester and require at least a 15 hour-per-week commitment. We can generally work with interns to schedule around other jobs or commitments.
Prospective candidates should have at least completed their junior year of college; applicants are encouraged to work with their school to get credit.
If you would like to be considered for a general internship, during the months of September to December submit a cover letter, CV, and brief writing sample. Please upload your information as a Word file, pdf, or link.
The Creative Nonfiction Foundation is a private not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization and welcomes all qualified applicants, regardless of gender, race, age, sexuality, or disability.
