Indiana Review seeks three interns for Spring 2018. During this time we will be in production for our Summer 2018 issue, running two of our annual Literary Prize contests, promoting the 2018 Blue Light Books Prize and Reading Series, and participating in readings and other events. The IR interns are immersed in the day-to-day management of the journal. They will also have the chance to proofread and attend genre deliberation meetings, allowing for an insider look at the literary and creative decision-making process.
Web & Publicity Intern
The Web & Publicity intern is responsible for maintaining and growing IR’s web presence through social media and advertising. This position also provides critical assistance to our exciting annual Blue Light reading series and to our annual Literary Prize contests. We are looking for someone who can develop, maintain, and grow our online presence with a unique, consistent, and engaging voice. This position is less about technical mastery (though we love that!) and more about a willingness to delve into multiple projects, think creatively, and engage with a larger literary audience. Experience with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, WordPress, Photoshop, Canva, Outlook, and Word desired.
The Prize intern assists in processing and publicizing our 2018 Poetry Prize and 2018 Blue Light Books Prize for an outstanding story collection. This intern tracks prize submissions and works with senior staff and the Web & Publicity intern. A literary contest has many moving parts and we’re looking for a detail-oriented candidate that can keep all those parts running smoothly. Familiarity with WordPress, Word, Outlook, and Excel desired.
Contracts & Subscriptions Intern
The Contracts and Subscriptions intern is responsible for processing subscription and single-issue orders, responding to customer service requests, maintaining our subscriptions database, and helping to coordinate subscription drives efforts. This detail-oriented intern also works directly with authors, distributing and processing contracts. Both positions are critical to issue production. Experience with Excel, databases, Outlook, and collaborative projects desired.
To be eligible for this internship, you must have a College and major GPA of 3.0 or better and must have 12 credits in English at the 200-level or above, including L202 or L260. If you are interested, email a letter of application and CV to IU English Internship Program, Department of English, c/o Jody Hays (firstname.lastname@example.org), by the deadline specified below. In the letter you should mention any relevant experience and coursework, as well as your reasons for being interested in the internship. Please also list your class standing, campus address, telephone number, student ID number, and the names of one or two professors as references. The final selection of interns will be made by the Editor of Indiana Review.
Next Deadline: September 29, 2017
