Internships in English


Indiana Review seeks 3 interns for the Spring 2017 semester. During this time we will be in production for our Winter 2017 issue, running three of our annual Literary Prize contests, promoting the 2017 Blue Light Books Prize and Reading Series, and participating in small conferences and events.

Web & Publicity Intern
The Web & Publicity intern is responsible for maintaining and growing IRís 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.

Prize Intern
The Prize intern assists in advertising and publicizing our 2017 Poetry Prize and 2017 Blue Light Books Prize. This intern processes and tracks prize submissions and works with senior staff and the Web & Publicity intern. A literary contest has many moving parts and weíre looking for a detail-oriented candidate that can keep all those parts running as smoothly as possible. Familiarity with Wordpress, Word, Outlook, and Excel desired.

Contracts & Subscriptions Intern
Contracts and Subscriptions interns are responsible for processing subscription and single-issue orders, responding to customer service requests, maintaining our subscriptions database, and helping to coordinate subscription drives efforts. These detail-oriented interns also work 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 to IU English Internship Program, Department of English, c/o Jody Hays (, by the deadline specified below. In the letter you should mention any relevant experience, your course work in English, and 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.
